Wine Enthusiast 88 Points
Fruity and fresh, this medium-bodied wine has dark plum and blackberry aromas, along with ripe and almost sweet blackberry flavors. A lightly gripping texture helps make it appetizing.

Tasting Notes
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has great varietal expression from one of the best vintages in California’s modern history. The blending of Merlot offers the blend some sweet dark fruit and soft tannins while the Petit Verdot adds richness and depth. Look forward to aromas and flavors of black cherry with just a hint of black licorice. The finish will add notes of chocolate, vanilla, and just a touch of toast.

Food Pairings
Great with charbroiled burgers or your favorite steak fresh off the grill.

Winemaker Notes
We sourced this wine from prime Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards throughout California, spots where warm, sunny days develop grapes to rich, balanced fruit expression with intriguing hints of thyme. A small percentage of Merlot adds depth and complexity to the deep blackberry and cherry character, and oak aging fully integrates the tannins.

The Winery
Twenty years ago, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready shared a vision: grow distinctive grapes, produce delicious wine, have fun and make friends in the process. They founded their three-family partnership in 1985 and launched the brand with two wines: estate grown Fumé Blanc and Chardonnay.

In the beginning, only the Murphy family's ranch and the Murphy-Goode Vineyard provided the grapes. Over the years, Murphy-Goode Winery steadily increased production, expanding the winery capacity and augmenting the harvest with fruit from the winery's "grower partners," local farmers and neighbors who shared the Murphy-Goode vision.

Initially the partners custom-crushed their grapes at a neighboring winery; consultant Merry Edwards guided the winemaking. After constructing a modest production facility on Tim Murphy's Alexander Valley ranch in 1987, they hired Winemaker Christina Benz. Chris made fifteen vintages of Murphy-Goode wine before turning the winemaking over to David Ready Jr. in 2001.

In recent years, the winery's focus has shifted from primarily white wine to distinctive red wines, particularly Bordeaux blends. Today, Murphy's three sons oversee the vineyards. Dave Ready's two sons make the wine. With exceptional grapes, inspired winemaking and the guiding values of the founding partners, the Murphy-Goode team is entering a fresh, new era of excellence.
