"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bancroft Ranch was outstanding, but suffered in comparison to some of the other cuvées. They all can be approached early on (3-4 years), but will age for 25+ years."
- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
The 2013 vintage began with a warm, dry spring and relatively early bud break. Summer was notably consistent with even, warm temperatures throughout. Harvest began quite early in August, and by September the majority of whites and lighter reds were completely off the vines. Cool yet sunny weather in October allowed the final grapes on the vine to linger and develop great phenolic and flavor maturities while maintaining steady sugar levels. Overall, it was a high quality crop that was above average in quantity.
