Lot 613 | 2013 Red Mountain
Our fourth blockbuster release for the fall season!
Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
The black core shows the power of this wine, and its extended time in barrel is reflected in the brickish red rim. The nose is delicately nuanced but potent nevertheless, with concentrated black currant and cassis framing uplifted minerally/loamy red fruit with notes of leather and smoke. The aromatic evolution adds cedar, black cherry, and mocha/chocolate to the mix, but the overall shifting and changing aromas are a hint of more to come. Full-bodied on the palate and richly textured, with nicely grained tannins supporting nuanced black cherry fruit and chocolatey oak in a long, youthful finish just beginning to reveal itself.
Be sure to decant for a couple hours for your drinking pleasure in the short term.

Red Mountain is a region better known for structure and power than ultra-ripe fruit, and Lot 613 is no exception. It comes to us from a historic family-owned estate and is very much an “old school” Cabernet (something you Bordeaux lovers out there will appreciate).
Sourced directly from the producing winery’s flagship Reserve offering, this is a prime example of Red Mountain terroir, and 28 months in barrel (60% new oak) has done a fantastic job of integrating the big structure of this wine and bringing the fruit forward. It’s the perfect wine for pairing with a thick, juicy steak, and will also cellar gracefully for another 15+ years.
How did I miss this release!
Oh my! This is an incredible wine for $25 and is exceptional. When this was first released I was focusing on the Napa cabs that were being offered at the time. What a mistake! This is a great bottle of wine. When I first open and started to decant I noticed the color was not what I was expecting. It was deep red but tinging to brown like opening up a real old Bordeaux. I had to take a taste before I finished decanting and knew once this opened up it was going to be fantastic. I actually decanted overnight and happy I did. What a fabulous wine. When I go to purchase more I think I will buy case. The nose has a somewhat mineral hint and a complex blend of cassis and chocolate. The decanted taste was one of an expensive cab. You will not be disappointed if purchase Lot 613. I wish I could hold this wine for years but I will be too tempted to open what I have.
This WA cab is a very good example of the powerful reds coming from Red Mountain. It is a nicely balanced wine with black cherry, black currant, cassis aromas and flavors along with some dusty minerality. Tannins are still very present, as is the case with most Red Mountain reds. Buy several and try over the coming years to see how it develops, or open it now with a big chunk of red meat and let it breath.
Keep going back
I need to order more of these, as I am drawn to the floral infused leather.
Last bottle here was great!
Classic cigar box and floral infused leather leave you wanting more with every glass!
Can be a bit potent at times, but overall 5/5
Washington is quickly becoming a Cab favorite for me
Washington state (Red Mountian and Walla Walla Valley) are quickly becoming my favorite areas for really good cabs at great prices. This is one of a number of Washington cabs from CH that are really good. I just ordered some more - thanks CH.
Excellent Washington cabernet that's ready to drink now. Very well balanced with soft tannins, providing flavors of cherry, mocha and dark chocolate. Would definitely purchase again.
Good WA cab
This is a good Washington cabernet and at a fair price.
Very easy to drink
A classy, well-structured Cab. Needed some time to breath, but certainly a notch up from the cheaper wines with some complexity and dark fruit notes. Drinking very well now, but with sufficient tannins to develop over then next few years (however, 2032 may be a push...)
This one was a bit too floral and sweet, but still absolutely love that floral infused leather.
Enjoyed this cab very much. Interesting changes within the glass as the wine opened up. The complexity mellowed while the fruit enhanced its presence. Give it a tumble and pay attention to the changes.
Very pleasing finish.
