Product Overview

The 2013 Crown Point Estate Cabernet Sauvignon by winemaker Adam Henkel (previously the winemaker at Harlan Estate) shows aromatic hints of truffle, espresso, subtle charcoal, and cassis while the mouthfeel builds layers upon layers of extravagant richness with its notes of dark red fruits, toast and graphite. Full-bodied, with a tannin structure reminiscent of crushed velvet, it is a very young wine that should hit its prime in about 10 years (2025).

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon (clones 338 and 8)
Appellation: Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA
Aging: 26 months in new French oak

96 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Entrepreneur Roger Bower hired Harlan Estate alum Adam Henkel to deliver top-tier wines, and this first release is an extremely auspicious beginning. Black as night in the glass, the wine delivers elegant aromas of olallieberry jam, baking spice, shaved chocolate, beef jerky, teriyaki and purple flowers. The sticky structure will age phenomenally, further concentrating flavors of coffee foam, soy-laced berry sauce, Asian pepper spice, and dense blueberry, black cassis and black plum fruit. Drink 2018-2033." -MK 12/31/16

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals slowly evolving cr√É®me de cassis, preserved plums and cigar box notes with a lovely earth and underbrush undercurrent plus notions of bay leaves and lavender. The medium-bodied palate offers lovely poise and is elegant yet intense, with plenty of youthful, muscular fruit supported by grainy tannins and finishing with a spring in its step. Give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 15-20+." -LPB, 9/29/17
