"The 2013 Cariad Proprietary Red Wine, a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot, shows great intensity, with a slightly more burning ember and scorched earthiness to it, giving it a more Graves-like character compared to the purity of the Tychson Hill. The wine is full-bodies, rich, layered and possibly slightly more tannic and backward than the Tycshson Hill. The wine is full-bodied, rich, layered and possibly slightly more tannic and backward that the Tychson Hill, but that could be because it had recently been bottled. It should evolve over the course of 30+ years. This is an incredible lineup of wines from Ann Colgin, her winemaker Allison Tauziet and Bordeaux winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. Of course, thy have David Abreu, the superstar of viticulturist, looking after their vineyards which, based on those I've seen at Tychson Hill and the IX Estate, are meticulously and fastidiously maintained as well as drop-dead beautiful terroirs. The 2012's, which I reviewed from bottle before, have gone from strength to strength at the top of the qualitative pyramid. The 2013's had just been bottled, so I was blown away by how amazingly they performed. Of couse, the 2012 was a great vintage, but the 2013, as I've already indicated, is probably the finest vintage for Bordeaux varietals I've ever tasted in my 37 years of experience in Napa Valley." - 98 Points, Robert Parker
