Wine Advocate Review Rated 92+ The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rapture exhibits what Cabernet Sauvignon can do from a top winemaker in Lodi. This wine, from 30-year-old vines of Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new oak, offers up an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, graphite and vanilla. It is spicy and rich, with oodles of cassis fruit, full-bodied opulence and a long, heady finish with velvety tannins. Approachable now, it should drink well for at least another 10 years or more.
Wine Tasting Notes Rapture holds its own against higher priced Cabernets from other regions. It drinks like a lush vintage of Bordeaux, offering abundant structure, deep color and ample fruit with gentle tannins. The mid-palate delivers blackberry, some smoke, chocolate and espresso. Rapture has a lovely, velvety mouth feel, and a long, intense finish.
