2013 KATHERINE GOLDSCHMIDT Crazy Creek Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Suggested Retail $23.99 ON SALE $18.99
Composed from two specific vineyard sites, this 2013 Cabernet comes from vines that proprietor/winemaker Nick Goldschmidt has been farming since 1989. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the style is polished, bold and precise.
A lip smacking, savory finish is a reminder of the grace and power that eminates from Alexander Valley Cabernets. Aged for 18 months in a combination of American, French and Hungarian oak barrels.
"One of the best vintages in 30 years from the Alexander Valley. Great season, warmer than 2012, but a moderate one with no heat spikes and grape dehydration. Bud break was early for this vintage. We experienced a warm June but a cool July that perfectly balanced the vines. August was perfect. Picked the week of Sep 10th. Cabernet came in a little early and light. The clusters were there but the cluster density was a little low. The flavors were mature and complex. The tannins fully ripened. Overall, the quality of 2013 was outstanding."
