2013 Seaver Vineyards GTS Diamond Mountain Napa Valley 1500ml
95 Points Robert Parker!
A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from the great New York Mets Hall of Fame pitcher, Tom Seaver. He was smart to use Jim Barbour as a vineyard manager and Thomas Rivers Brown as winemaker. Coming from a parcel on Diamond Mountain, the wine is dense purple, shows beautiful crème de cassis fruit, blackberries, a touch of earth, full-bodied richness, beautiful and sweet integrated tannins, as well as oak. This is a beauty and comes in at about 14.5% natural alcohol. Kudos. Here's a celebrity wine that definitely matches the brilliance of the celebrity himself. Drink it over the next 20 years.
