Winemaker Notes

This stellar growing season led to wines with great intensity and complexity. Deep, dark black cherry with hints of ruby on the rim, ERA 2013 is concentrated and expressive. On the palate, round, velvety entrance evolves on structured but granular tannins with hints of black cherry, plum and blueberry jam lingering on rose, wisteria, elderberries and huckleberries strong backbone of acidity and an elegant, lasting finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Alpha Omega’s 2013 ERA is a selection of the best lots from all of their single vineyards, and even though it is a proprietary red, this version is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. The wine is tightly coiled, very reserved, with relatively high tannin, but a saturated purple color, and shows notes of charcoal, incense, white flowers and black and blue fruits. It’s all there, but this wine begs for 5-8 years of bottle age before consumption. It should last for 25-30 years as well.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
A conservative 4% Cabernet Franc adds floral aroma and subtle herbaceousness to this Cabernet Sauvignon, which bristles on the nose in sandalwood and hibiscus. The rounded rich flavors tend toward red cherry and cassis—big bold layers of concentration supported by well-integrated tannin.
JS 94
James Suckling
This is a rich and exotic red with loads of blueberry, blackberry and lavender aromas and flavors. Full and velvety. Long and flavorful finish. Super tannin integration. Flashy style, and satisfying. Drink or hold.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Rich, with explosive dark berry, spicy oak, licorice, currant and plum flavors. Remarkably complex and surprisingly svelte given the size, with the elegance making this appealing to drink now. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2019 through 2032.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
