2013 Arrow&Branch Red Wine ‘Very Highly Recommended’ in October California Grapevine

The 2013 Red Wine was judged 3rd in a tasting of new Cabernet Sauvignon releases in the October 2016 California Grapevine:

Very Highly Recommended: Medium dark ruby; attractive, forward, intense, spicy, cassis, blackberry, and dark cherry fruit aroma with earthy notes and hints of mocha and vanilla; full body; big, rich, deep, extracted, cedary, firmly structured, red and black fruit flavors with a note of sweet oak; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Currently showing rich, accessible fruit, though still deserving another three to five more years of bottle aging.
