2013 NEAL CABERNET SAUVIGNON 1.5L
<< Back to Shop
This is the first vintage sourcing from the Neal Vineyard on Howell Mountain, a certified organic vineyard owned and farmed by the Neal family since 1968. This bottle is red fruit dominant with strawberries, raspberries and stewed plums both on the nose and palate. The intense oak has given this wine a beguiling clove, vanilla, nutmeg character that should subdue as it ages.
