2013 DR Stephens Estate Walther RiverCabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The Walther River block is a cobblestone-heavy vineyard near the Napa River in Rutherford. Plush and sweet-fruited, this wine is incredibly opulent, but still maintains terrific grip and freshness. Leather, black cherry compote, cassis, minerals, and cigar leaf complete the portrait of this extremely concentrated and sapid Cabernet. So seamless and balanced, this will age through 2030 effortlessly. A towering tour de force.
