K Vintners The Creator Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah 2013

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 94-96pts:

It has lots of iodine, dried blood (these are classic Rocks aromatics), pepper, chocolate and peat moss that flow to a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, ripe Cabernet that has plenty of mid-palate depth and sweet tannin. While it’s a big, rich, ripe wine, it never comes across as heavy or cumbersome. It should benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar and drink well over the following decade.

From the winemaker:

This is a classic year for this awesome wine. Textbook aromas and flavors…let’s go! Cured black olive, fresh and dried herb, earthy and meaty. The Cabernet wins the day with graphite, pencil lead, black currant, and rock galore. Hail The Creator!

The warmest vintage since 2003 cooled off just in time for harvest. The resulting wines were less likely to tip over into overripe favors or high alcohol levels, and picking proceeded at a normal pace. Total tonnage was up about 5 percent over 2012, a record for the state. 2013 made us thank Sweet Baby Jesus that our white wine
vineyards are cool sites at higher elevation. The very warm vintage cooled down in midSeptember allowing us to pick at the perfect moment in the first week of October. This gave us generous full favored wine while still keeping focus.
