Dusted Valley 2013 V.R. Special Cabernet Sauvignon

Delivery date: 1 week
Blended with a whopping 15% Petit Verdot, this wine offers locked-up aromas of pencil lead, floral notes, plum and dark fruit. The palate is packed with fruit and herb flavors that intertwine through the lingering finish. The tannins provide some serious grip.
$60.00

WINEMAKER NOTES

The blood, sweat and tears that went in to growing this wine are dedicated to the loving memory of my Grandpa Vernon Rhodes. He was truly an amazing man. This Cab takes its name from his miraculous chocolate chip cookie the “V.R. Special”. I bet you wish you could dunk one in a glass of this wine right now. Rest easy Grandpa Rhodes. We love you! This Cab has a beautiful bouquet on the nose, great fruit with a nice tannic grip, and a lingering finish that will keep you wondering for minutes.

VARIETAL COMPOSITION

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot

91 points, Wine Enthusiast:
"Another terrific effort that makes the most of the vintage is the 2013 Vr Special Cabernet Sauvignon, which has 15% Petit Verdot in the blend and saw 35% new oak barrels. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced and layered, it has a lifted, complex bouquet of spice, incense, plums and leather. It’s certainly enjoyable now, but its balance and mid-palate depth suggest it will keep for at least a decade." -Jeb Dunnuck
