Ghostwriter Bates Ranch Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$58.99$52.99

91 Points, Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in 25% new French oak, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bates Ranch offers a very classic, pure, focused profile as well as textbook Cabernet notes of black currants, leafy herbs, freshly sharpened pencils and spring flowers. Elegant, layered and impeccably balanced, with ultra fine tannin, it stays light and graceful on the palate; while it plays in the more lean, elegant end of the spectrum, it has beautiful purity and length. It should drink well for a decade or more."

Looking for an old-school claret to accompany roast beef, green beans, and sautéed greens, rooting around in the cellar, bingo! This beautiful wine has the elegance, the zip, the clean crisp pizzazz, with more than enough Cabernet depth and power (how much power do you really need?), this is a case buy to enjoy with many dinners. News flash: wine goes with food! Home run.

Grippy with high and tight acid. Crazy, savory stuff. Likely a one-time thing, unfortunately.

Well. Had this about a year ago. Gave it a 10. So 10. What's a 10 anyway. I dunno. But I love it. Fruit forward. Hangs with you. Color rich. Nose of dark fruits, cherries, grapes, blackberries. Wish I had more.

This wine is killah. Fruit forward, age worthy. Different in a good way.

Nice pepper cab. Steve Matthiasson gave it a 10. That's good enough for me. Develops well with dinner. Happy Labor day, what happened to the summer?

Most excellent cab all the great things without being big fruit and overly alcoholic.
