2013 Revana Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

On Sale: $139.94 (was: $159.94)
Revana’s Estate Cabernet is a textbook example of what we’ve come to expect from illustrious winemaker Thomas Brown, who is a master at walking the tightrope between “dramatic, explosive” (Galloni) and “finesse and density” (Wine Spectator).
Named Winemaker of the Year by Food & Wine in 2010, Brown’s style of Cab never lacks for richness, but he always manages to coax out a level of complexity and freshness that has earned him numerous perfect scores from the Wine Advocate, as well as the first perfect score for an American winemaker from Wine Spectator! From Schrader to Outpost to Revana, Brown’s Cabs are worth every penny and if you’re like us, you’ll want to grab all you can from the 2013 vintage, which has turned out an epically age-worthy and collectible estate Cabernet.
Parker called the 2013 vintage a “game-changer” and potentially “one of the most epic and awesome vintages the North Coast of California has ever produced.” Revana’s 2013 Estate Cabernet honors the vintage with a forward yet structured character that promises a very long evolution. Open for business now with some air, this will deliver a ton of pleasure for years to come, but with only a couple of cases on hand you'll want to act now. Cheers!
