(2013 Vintage) (WA97) The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is from a 15-acre parcel with 12.5 acres planted and the famous red soils of Howell Mountain with loads of gravel and pebbles. This wine was also aged 32 months in cask prior to being released. More chocolate and mulberry, as well as graphite, are present in this wine that has fabulous vibrancy, a full-bodied intensity, impressive levels of blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of licorice and spice. It should drink well for 30-35 years.
