The 2013 Mascot Cabernet Sauvignon arose from distinct hillside vineyards; specifically from the comparatively younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate, and Promontory. Drawing fruit from blocks of more recently replanted vineyards between, The Mascot has such deep and expansive flavors and is so compelling, it’ll make you question how you got a wine of this regal quality for this price…

Winery Notes: “Having endured two years of drought within the region, vines were no stranger to adversity by the time they saw the dry growing season of 2013. Adversity, however, often reveals strength; and in the case of The Mascot, pedigree. The younger vines from the Harlan family bore well-formed clusters with small, dense berries. The juice was concentrated and finely balanced; skins thickened by wind yielded great structure and strength. Consequently, the final blend exhibits an athletic intensity that accelerates across the palate into a long- sustaining finish. Where the 2012 vintage is supple, plush, and expansive, 2013 is dense, deep, and complex-yet they share a vibrant core.

While the winery doesn’t specify exact grape varietal percentages in each vintage, The Mascot is always 90 – 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The 2013 has remarkable intensity, strength and a full-bodied opulence that brims with hedonistic flavors spanning from blueberry pie, muddled blackberries and roasted coffee beans.  This fantastic 2013 Cabernet perfectly reflects the breed and heritage of its incredible origins, and will make you grin from ear to ear when you taste it.
