One of the highlights in this range, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Montecillo Vineyard is utterly magnificent. Deep, pliant and explosive, the Montecillo shows just how magical this vintage is for Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 boasts striking inner sweetness, power and richness, all in a super-classic style built for cellaring. Lavender, plums, gravel, smoke, sage, graphite, licorice, inky fruit and dark spices add the closing shades of nuance. This dark, masculine Cabernet Sauvignon is going to need time, but it is an absolute jewel of a wine. Montecillo, which is one of the Sonoma side of Mount Veeder, has emerged in recent years as a top Cabernet Sauvignon site as a new generation of young producers are showing just what is capable here. The Arnot-Roberts 2013 Cabernets were all done with 30% whole clusters and aged in 30% new oak.See detailed press review
