2013 Acumen Mountainside Red Wine
74% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14% Malbec; 12% Merlot; 1200 cases produced
This medium-bodied wine shows multiple aromas of ripe red berries, rose petals, dried herbs, and cigar box. The soft and round mouthfeel offers up fresh blueberries, cassis, and pomegranates on the palate, with licorice and forest floor notes through the long and elegant finish. We love this wine with roasted and braised meats, especially beef, lamb, and pork.
2013 Vintage Notes
A warm, dry spring brought early bud break and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set. Even weather through the summer months allowed for very healthy vines with moderate vigor and berry size going in to veraison. Harvest began earlier than normal, but with great hang time due to the early flower and fruit set. We had cool, sunny weather through harvest allowing for ideal pick dates with above average yields of excellent quality.
