“The 2013 Upchurch Vineyard Cabernet boasts dark fruits, classic cassis and a whole pantry of spices, including sweet basil, marjoram, cedar pencil snap and cigar wrapper tobacco. Add floral notes of violet and lavender as well. Flavors are long and savory and are beautifully framed with toasty oak notes. These flavors include cassis, assorted berries, black pepper and notes of ripe tapenade.” 96 Points by Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker / The Wine Advocate
