Each bottle is a meditation on wine as art - utilizing the best grapes from Napa Valley's most famed vineyards, and dedicated to excellence in winemaking, each vintage is handcrafted and made in limited quantities to ensure that quality is never compromised. Metaphora observes the time-honored practices that include carefully monitored growing, an impeccably timed harvest, handpicked and hand-sorted grapes placed in small bins, cold-soaked for maximum extraction of the skins, whole cluster fermentation, and meticulously managed aging in the highest quality French oak barrels.
A big, rich, juicy style that offers power with finesse, this delivers an initial thrust of dark berry, spice, raspberry and cherry that is potent yet finds a nice cruising altitude and ends with a focused aftertaste. Drink now through 2024. 425 cases made.
From proprietor Ravi Mehta, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich, sweet, blackcurrant fruit, blackberries, white flowers and forest floor. It's cleanly made, pure, medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated acidity, tannin and wood. This is a beauty. There are 425 cases, and it should drink well for 15 or more years.
