The 2013 Bishop’s Peak Cabernet Sauvignon expresses bright aromas of red currant, sweet plum and candied red apples. With a rich texture, this medium-full bodied wine has flavors of juicy blackberry and cinnamon spice, layered with notes of graphite and earth. The silky, smooth tannins make this wine a perfect match for seared filet mignon or prosciutto wrapped figs and gorgonzola.
90 Points. The Tasting Panel, June 2015. Smooth, juicy and bright with plum, black raspberry and racy acidity; vanilla, spice and a good balance.
“Opaque ruby. Dark berries, licorice, cedary oak and a hint of pipe tobacco on the pungent nose. Gently sweet and velvety in the mouth, offering warm cherry and blackcurrant flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Dusty tannins frame the smoke-accented finish, which leaves behind a touch of coconut. This wines was aged in a 50/50 blend of French and American oak, 30% of it new.”
