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.
Outstanding nose and great juice
Wonderful nose. Concentrated fruit. Medium tannins. It really opens up after sitting for a half hour or so. Went perfect with steak. Great value.
Full body cab
Initially smoky but opens up to more black fruit and chocolate. Nice full body cab.
Splurged and Don't Regret
We spent more on this bottle, but it was worth it. Very smooth and opened up really well. Yum!
This was light and wonderful - I could drink this forever! LOVE!
Love this wine
Obviously a little pricier but this is great. Some more for the basement.
Tasty Full Bodied Cab
Tasty full bodied cab. Opened up after a while. Easy to drink. Pairs well with meat or good on its own.
Good buy. It opens up after awhile. Decant.
Rich and ready to drink
Somehow I missed it earlier but it was good to catch it now. It is a full bodied but soft cab which is ready to drink right now. Luscious but not overpowering, this was a great food wine.
Saving for a special occasion.
Very nice wine at an affordable price. Saving for a special occasion.
We really enjoyed this Cab. A bit more finesse relative to some of the California cabs and a bit more versatile. Wish we had ordered more.
