Robert Storey Cellars Yountville Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 
By Kerry Damskey
 
 
Introduction
This is a compelling wine from the Robert Storey collection as this Cabernet has an incredible taste profile, is from a great vineyard, is from the gorgeous 2013 vintage, and can cellar for many years, and is from the Yountville Appellation. This vineyard is actually across the street from the Stag’s Leap appellation. Napa’s Yountville is home to so many great wineries like Dominus, Kapscandy Family, Ghost Block and Girard Winery. And Yountville is Napa’s go to destination with its great restaurants including the French Laundry, Redd, Bistro Jeanty, Bouchon and Bottega. The Robert Storey selections are among the most coveted wines featuring the best of the best from Napa’s very best appellations and vineyards. It has been 3 years since the last Robert Storey wine from Kerry Damskey and his last selection sold out very quickly after it was made available. We believe this wine is very special. This selection follows many great wines including Ridgeline Vineyard’s Mark Beringer; Kyle Laird (“The Magician”); Bill Knuttel, from Chalk Hall and Saintsbury Fame; Dave Guffy, from the Hess Collection; Amicus’ Reed Renaudin with his Truchard Vineyard selection; Peterson from SP Drummer and internationally acclaimed winemaker Nick Goldschmidt, to name a few. Do not miss this very special Napa Cabernet!

Robert Storey Cellars 2013 Yountville  Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
UNIT SIZE: 750.00 ml
VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon
VINTAGE: 2013
GRAPE: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah
COUNTRY: United States 
REGION: Napa Valley 
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.90%
POINTS: 92+
This wine captures the beauty and elegance of Napa’s 2013 Cabernet vintage. It is from a single vineyard from Napa’s northeast part of the Yountville appellation that directly borders the Stag’s Leap appellation. The Vineyard is located right near Silverado Winery. Its mid-valley location, with moderate temperatures from the cooling marine air from San Pablo Bay, allows for Cabernet’s perfect even ripening conditions to achieve rich flavor and deep color. Kerry Damskey has made a fine wine that is rich and finessed with an incredibly appealing taste profile. It spent 14 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which were new. The fruit is vivid and electric with dignified and vivacious flavors. Dynamic expressions of ripe fruit including black cherry, cassis, sweet plum and blackberries with vanilla oak, dark chocolate, red roses, mocha and cinnamon. This 2013 Napa Reserve Cab is drinking perfectly now with nicely integrated tannins and will continue to gain complexity for many more years. A dark purple hue. An enticing nose of elegance and complexity including dark cherries, blackberries, and blueberries with toasty vanilla oak. A voluptuous wine with fabulous flavors of blackberry pie, red currants, plum, dark chocolate, and vanilla with Asian black tea and cinnamon. Made in a suave and silky style but also made to age so aeration or decanting is recommended with early enjoyment. It should age beautifully for another 8-10 years. Pair with a dry aged sirloin steak, game hens, spaghetti with meat ragu, Osso Buco, or a Porterhouse steak with pan seared cherry tomatoes. 940 cases were produced.

Winemaker, Kerry Damskey
Kerry Damskey bounds into a room...and within moments knows names and affiliations. He is charismatic, energetic and leaves a lasting imprint on everyone he meets. Kerry personifies joy and lust for life. Kerry came into winemaking only as a result of a conspiratorial plot on the part of his father. (dad) Damskey always secretly wished he himself had found the path to winemaking. While Kerry was busy digging in the dirt, his dad laid the groundwork to indoctrinate young Kerry from the very beginning. As the impressionable young man came of age, (dad) introduced him to good quality wines and plied him with legends of the vine. Kerry fell for it. While in college, he lived in a chicken coop at Matanzas Creek Winery and became involved in the layout of the original vineyard. The conspiracy worked. Like Andre Tchelistcheff before him, Kerry believes wine is made in the vineyard and the winemaker is merely the "midwife" in the artisan process of winemaking. "It's the winemaker's job to articulate a definable style for a wine but you don't create an identity - that must come from the grapes," says Kerry. Today, with more than 32 years of winemaking experience, Kerry is recognized on four continents for his acuity and focus in creating brilliant wines. Through his winemaking consulting practice, Terroirs, he oversees custom winegrowing, winemaking and vineyard acquisition. In addition to California and Washington, Kerry consults for wineries in India, China and Bulgaria. Kerry Damskey holds a B.S. in fermentation sciences from the University of California, Davis, is a graduate of the intensive program for small business at Stanford University School of Business, and is a candidate of the Institute of the Masters of Wine.
