Enjoy Napa Valley in a Glass!


Sue picking out leaves during harvestWe only produced 225 cases of our Parry Cellars 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, another elegant cabernet with ripe, bold fruit flavors, the hallmark of Parry Cellars. With one sip it's like visiting our home in St. Helena where you feel the warm sunshine on the grapes, smell the aroma of harvest and savor the elegance of ripe fruit.

The 2013 growing season provided ideal conditions from start to finish. No frost and a warm, dry spring brought early bud break and even flowering and fruit set. Summer provided warm sunny days and cool nights with only a couple of heat spikes in June. The harvest of 3.6 tons was one of our earliest on September 16, 2013.

Our winemaker, Andy Schweiger says our 2013 "reveals aromas of ripe plum with layers of blackberry, black cherry and hints of mint and eucalyptus. It has a velvet entry with a complex fruit profile leading to a well-balanced mid-palate of intense blueberry, cocoa, berry components and integrated tannins. It has a lingering finish balanced with elegant dark fruit and tannins." Enjoy this cabernet with a juicy steak or our favorite, braised beef shortribs!

The wine was aged for 19 months in 100% French oak barrels (44% new / 56% once-used). We are sure you will enjoy this wine now or be further rewarded by laying it down for another ten years or more.

We also have a little remaining of our 2012 vintage.

Since our releases are so limited, first priority will be given to those who have ordered our wine and members on our Mailing List.

The Challenges of Direct Shipping!

As a tiny winery we would love to be able to ship our wine directly to all consumers who enjoy our cabernet. Despite the May 2005 U.S. Supreme Court decision on direct shipping, some states still aren't permitting small wineries like ours to ship directly to consumers or their permitting procedures, paperwork and costs are too onerous.
