Gandona Cabernet Sauv 2013
Another powerhouse from Philippe Melka 2013 Gandona is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and shows great purity of fruit and place. Black current, blackberries, red plum rounds out a few of the fresh ripe fruits. More importantly is the sense of place that is reflected in the wine. Loam, earth, red rocks, and other mineral notes surround the fruit. The massiveness of this vintage is apparent as the 95% new oak is totally enveloped in this youthful stage. This will be the longest lived Cabernet Sauvignon produced by Gandona to date. Enjoy now with a long decant or keep in the cellar for a few years.
