The 2013 Memento Mori is stunning. The growing season in 2013 was superb and very early, yet still allowing each of our vineyards plenty of time to reach optimal ripeness. This RTL bottling highlights the core of Memento Mori and is a great barometer of the intensity and power that the 2013 vintage has to offer.
