2013 Abreu - Cappella Proprietary Red (750ml)


Quantity in Stock: 2

Vinous: 95-98 Points

A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cappella presents an exotic, beguiling m?lange of lavender, smoke, violets, mint and spices. Darker and less immediate than the 2012 tasted alongside it, the 2013 is crystalline in its purity and sense of translucency. This is one of the most finessed, understated wines I have tasted from Abreu. All the elements are in the right place. The 2013 Cappella is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot.- Antonio Galloni (10/2015)

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

The Cappella, which usually has at least 35-30% Cabernet Franc in it, looks absolutely fabulous now that the 2013 Cappella is finally in bottle. They only made about 206 cases of it, so it's a small cuv?e from this vineyard on the back streets of St. Helena. It displays sweet espresso notes, loads of white chocolate, blackberry, Asian spice and incense. It is full-bodied and opulent, with the tannins surprisingly silky and well-disguised, which is somewhat unusual in this vintage of extraordinary power and density. This is a 35- to 50-year wine.- Robert M. Parker, Jr. (10/2016)
