A season of very consistent temperatures and a slightly smaller crop size created this perfectly ripe and aromatic Cabernet Sauvignon. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe raspberries, blueberry tart, and warm spicy cocoa combine to offer a deeply complex aroma profile of classic Rutherford Cabernet. At entry, the wine is soft, rich, and bright with fresh fruit flavors. The deeper vanilla tones provide a lush backdrop for notes of dark Bing cherries.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 M. Etain Cabernet Sauvignon, which is hardly a second wine by any means, offers beautiful blackcurrant fruit with some cedar wood/sandalwood notes, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity, and that layered texture that is so enticing. The wine has a beautiful opaque purple color, hints of graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of licorice and the soil undertones that some would say are part of the so-called "Rutherford dust" scenario, although that's debatable. This wine has the sweetness and opulence to be drunk young, but won't hit its prime for at least another 5-8 years and keep for 20-30.
