2013 Bishop's Peak Elevation

2013 Bishop's Peak Elevation

Deep ruby in color, the 2013 vintage of this classic Bordeaux blend is a beautiful expression of the Paso Robles appellation. The nose has bright notes of olallieberry and ripe plum, layered with roasted macadamia nuts and wet river rock. The palate is supple, intense and refined with underlying notes of oak and baking spice, followed by a hint a red cherry. Enjoy this beautifully crafted blend with roasted leg of lamb or a hearty beef stew.

Professional Reviews

Vinous, September 2016.  Opaque ruby. Lively, oak-spiced aromas of cassis and cherry liqueur, licorice and cured tobacco are lent vivacity by a smoky mineral flourish. Palate-caressing dark berry and bitter cherry flavors deepen and become sweeter with aeration, picking up a floral pastille nuance. Closes supple, sweet and quite long, displaying building spiciness, rounded tannins and very good clarity.

Wine Enthusiast, January 2017. The top bottling of the Talley family's second label, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot and 16% Malbec offers tons of black fruit on the nose as well as fennel, thyme, oregano and a subdued licorice note. The palate puts violet florality together with fresh blackberry fruit, white pepper and a bit of caramel, proving both delicious and elegant.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2013 vintage marked the second year of the California drought. Dry conditions in the spring at bloom time afforded excellent fruit set and these ideal growing conditions continued throughout the summer and fall. Harvest was earlier than normal in the greater Paso Robles region, though more typical for the cooler areas where the grapes for this wine were grown. 2013 has been referred to as a “blockbuster vintage” by respected growers, and this vintage of Bishop’s Peak Elevation is reflective of that quality.

A very solid wine, especially for the price point. Stands up to many of the higher priced Bordeaux blends from Napa / Sonoma. Every guest will enjoy it ... need to have a few cases on-hand!
