Hailed as the best vintage in nearly 50 years, 2013 was simply extraordinary. Our 2013 Perseid and 2013 Special Family Reserve received 97 and 98+ points from critic Robert Parker. What the difference between one and half points? Heck if we know, but what we do know is they're both simply gorgeous. Give this set a try and let us know your favorite!
One 2013 Perseid:
From the Critic Robert Parker 97 Points
The opaque blue/purple 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Perseid, from vineyard in the southeast sector of Napa Valley, really is strutting its stuff. It's backward, shows loads of minerality and earth, but the tannic structure is strong, the wine inky purple with plenty of blackberry and cassis. The mouth layers are incredible and the finish just goes on and on. This is a remarkable effort that should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. In fact it probably won't be even hitting its plateau for another 5-6 years.
One 2013 Special Family Reserve:
FROM THE CRITIC ROBERT PARKER 98+ POINTS
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Family Reserve has a dense, opaque, black/purple color, enormous extract and massive fruit, full-bodied power and stunning purity and depth. Readers are often too young to remember what some of the great classics of the late 1960s and 1970s tasted like, particularly the Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignons of 1968-1974. Well, I bought those wines, and tasting these Meteor Vineyard wines reminded me of their super-richness and almost overwhelming extract and power. This is another great achievement, but a real connoisseur's wine in that it's going to take 8-10 years to come around and last 30-40 years, if not longer.
