22 months in 100% new French oak
2013 Herrera Rebecca, Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon has a bouquet of concentrated dark fruits, cassis, brown sugar, and hints of minerality. The rich mouthfeel evokes elegance, with flavors of dark chocolate, fig, licorice, and dried cranberry.
The 2013 growing season proved to be an excellent year in Napa Valley. It was slightly warmer than 2012, resulting in an overall earlier growing season. Lower than normal rainfall paired with moderate spring weather brought early bud break and bloom. Sunny skies throughout the summer months led to early veraison and harvest. Warm daytime temperatures followed by cool nights prior to harvest produced evenly ripened fruit with ideal hang time.
