"2013, by almost every account was one of the highest quality, most successful harvests in decades. Only slightly smaller than the bountiful 2012 harvest, the 2013 harvest also saw just slightly cooler temperatures heading into harvest, which led (as a slightly dangerous, sweeping generalization) to slightly higher acidity levels than 2012. So what does the best of 2013 Napa Cabernet taste like? In a word, glorious. While I happened to love the cooler flavors and lower alcohols of 2010 as well as 2011 (for those who avoided the dreaded over-green pyrazines of that rain-soaked harvest), The most successful wines have an incredible brightness thanks to super-juicy acidity, and their tannic structures are wonderfully fine and smooth."
