While 2012 seemed like the greatest in years to consumers, winemakers knew that they had something truly special right around the bend. Welcome to 2013. What's truly special about 2013 is that it's appealing across the board. Whether you're on the v alley floor or hillside vineyards, north to south, the wines are textbook examples of a picture-perfect vintage. What's more is that you don't need to buy up to the top-shelf to find wine of engaging personality, character and intensity. i n fact, 2013 may go down as the greatest vintage ever for 'second' wines and wines from less prestigious sites. What this means for you and me is that it's time to stock up. ✦ Napa Valley had seen some difficult vintages in the last five years, but all was forgotten the moment that 2012 hit the scene. Suddenly it was hard to find a California Cabernet that wasn't firing on all cylinders. napa valley
