2013 Futo Futo, Oakville, California, USA
We’re sorry, but other customers have purchased this wine for their collection and we’re now out of stock. Would you be interested in other formats or other vintages?
98 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (October 2016)
From the original Oakville estate, the 2013 Proprietary Red (which spends most of its time in T-5 Taransaud as well as Darnajou new oak) is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It is a magnificent wine, tasting like a Pauillac from Oakville. The wine has notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, graphite, incense and charcoal embers interwoven with blackberry, cassis and unsmoked cigar tobacco. Full-bodied and multi-layered, with exceptional purity and depth, its great intensity and richness make this a prodigious effort that should drink well for 30 or more years.
96+ Antonio Galloni, Vinous (December 2016)
The 2013 Futo is the most reticent of the 2013s I tasted on my most recent visit. Given the high amount of Cabernet Franc here and how well all the other wines showed, I imagine that it is just a function of where the 2013 is at this point in time. Still very tightly wound, the 2013 is going to need a few more years in bottle. I wouldn't plan on touching a bottle any time soon.
