2013 Kingpin Cabernet Sauvignon
91+ Wine Advocate (2102)
90 Wine Advocate (2013), 90 Wine Spectator (2013)
Cabernet sauvignon from Klipsun Vineyard old vines Red Mountain and a touch of high elevation Olsen Vineyard petit verdot give Kingpin its characteristic depth, power and grace. Explosive aromas of black currants, blackberry, black cherry, black plum, violets, cigar box and cedar lead to a palatial volcano of molten chocolate covered black fruit, cinnamon and fractured rock. Made to develop and endure handsomely for decades.
