The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Limitless is the star. Coming in at 15.4% alcohol, the wine has that extra gear and dimension to it that makes 2013 such a profoundly great vintage for Bordeaux varieties in Northern California. The wine has gorgeous forest floor, white flower, blackberry, blueberry and cassis notes, licorice, a savory, broad, full-bodied mouthfeel with terrific intensity, and somewhat surprisingly soft but noticeable tannins. This is a big, sexy, juicy, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20+ years.

What a vibrant and expressive vintage! Radiant with perfectly ripe aromas of blackberries, cassis, strawberry, roasted nuts and perfumed plums. Hints of marzipan, espresso, black Indian spices, dried wildflowers, ripe passion fruit and the hallmark notes of stony minerality add incredible complexity.
A powerhouse of flavors both sweet and savory. Black and purple fruit flavors wind through wild sage and chaparral. The synchrony of balance and power make for an intriguing and complex wine with a long-lasting finish. Enjoy now and cellar over the next 25 years.

The Black Aces is a nod to the great players teams might lean on in a time of adversity…often referred to having an “ace up your sleeve”. In addition to the label design of our Foundation wine, the label is the replica shape of an ice rink with our interpretation of skate marks on the ice. Similar to the way Black Aces enrich their team with their experience, hard work and commitment to excellence, this wine is a matured addition to any table.
Black cassis, brambly blackberry with a slight dried lavender note, complimented by hints of cocoa powder. Full bodied, concentrated and supple with a black fruit profile and notes of graphite and mocha. A balance of power and finesse.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe aromas of plum, cherry and a hint of white pepper. Flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, and toasty, French oak are exactly what you would anticipate in this classic Napa Valley Cabernet. The wine’s smooth body and structure are evident, with the acidity acting as a building block in unison with the tannins giving a full and bold palate.
