2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Mother Vine
Deeply flowing black fruits are elevated with red fruit aromatics. This Cabernet hosts a richly textured mid-palate, with creamy black cassis and dark, red berry flavors. The lush wine flows into a tapestry of opulent textured mocha and chocolate character. The finish is complete with integrated oak and leather, and notes of comparable dried, cured meat.
A pioneer in the California wine industry, Concannon Vineyard has a history of firsts. Among these contributions was the introduction of the Concannon Cabernet clone 7 in 1966 to the winegrowing community, particularly in Napa Valley. Today this clone can be found in the most esteemed Cabernet Sauvignons in the state, and Concannon continues to offer our own exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from our very best estate vineyard block. The fruit for the “Mother Vine” Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the vines of the very first planting of our legendary clone and is named to honor the “mother vine” that gave birth to a legacy.
