2013 Angelo's Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5 l)
In the 1960s, Angelo Regusci transformed the Regusci Ranch into one of the preeminent Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the entire world. Named in his honor, our west-facing hillside vineyard represents the absolute pinnacle of Stags Leap District grape-growing.
For a wine this important, our standards are uncompromising. We meticulously pick and isolate the best hillside grapes. We separate the best lots and pair them with our best oak. We tediously monitor the color and flavor of each barrel over a two year period. And when the time comes, we bottle this amazing wine inside our most robust glass. If a vintage is ever anything short of perfect, we will not release it.
This wine is the ultimate expression of our family history and passion for farming. It is an honor to share this ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon with you and your loved ones.
The 2013 vintage is remarkable in every sense of the word. Ominously dark, brooding black fruit aromas flirt with notes of vanilla, mocha, perfume and cigar. The palate is complex, deeply nuanced and deceptively smooth. Rich, abundant black cherry and blackberry flavors dance with dense tannins, leading to a long, unrelenting finish.
