2013 'TIETJEN VINEYARD' Cabernet Sauvigon
This wine is offering fantastic primary aromas of rich, ripe red-berry fruit. I find undertones of sweet vanillin oak and hints of caramel. On the palate the wine is massive, with a wonderful core of fruit on the full mid-palate. The balance of the wine from front to back is impeccable, and the finish is long and carries the fruit beautifully.

Wine ProfileTasting Notes(91 - 94) The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Corley Tietjen Vineyard from Rutherford is in barrel, awaiting bottling after a full 30 months of aging. A black ruby/purple color, this is also impressive with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit, graphite and forest floor. It's full-bodied, rich and should be impressive, if they don't filter the hell out of it at bottling. Drink 2016-2030.
