This fantastic wine will not last the day.

If you enjoyed the blockbuster Young Ridge 2013 Premium Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that we featured earlier this year, you’ll go bonkers over this 2013 vintage! The 2012 sold out in record time - and the 2013 is even better than its older sibling.

2013 Napa Cabs hail from the best vintage in recent memory. Robert Parker awarded the 2013 Napa Cab vintage a record-busting 98 points. And Wine Enthusiast awarded the vintage a stellar 95 point score. Young Ridge is among our most popular Cabs these last 13 years. Hurry. Limited.

This Napa Cab is dense and brooding in the glass, with an almost black heart with a thin ring of garnet at the edge. It boasts a complex and varietally-correct bouquet with deep notes of plum, cassis, maraschino cherry, leather, and pipe tobacco. It follows through marvelously on the palate with expansive flavors of plum and blackberry compote, cigar box, fig reduction sauce, and leather. Young Ridge continues to impress us with superbly balanced, approachable and complex wines. If this is anything like their other wines, it will hold up for a decade to come. Spare no expense: Go for the filet mignon. Preferably wrapped in bacon.

Winemaker Julianna Beckmann Gosling started her winemaking career as an intern at Robert Mondavi Winery, and after graduating from the University of California at Davis, she worked at both Beaulieu Vineyard and Sterling Vineyards. Today Julianna oversees all aspects of the winemaking process, shepherding the wines through from vineyard to bottle.
