About

90+

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is somewhat tannic and closed, but offers notes of crème de cassis, red currants, licorice and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied with moderately high tannin, it requires another 1-2 years of bottle age. There is a lot of potential here and it should eventually merit a score in the low-nineties. Drink 2018-2028."

Product Description:

"2012 marks our third release of the Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon and represents a broad view of our mountain vineyard blocks. An array of clones is planted on two exposed peaks, each distinctive for its topography of fractured rock or volcanic uplift, where vines of low vigor produce small berries resulting in a wine of deep concentration and refinement. The stellar 2012 growing season presents an exemplary display of site purity and expression.

2012 presented ideal growing conditions delivering a wine of supple power and elegance. An inviting bouquet of black currants, brown sugar and pipe tobacco lead to a lively and fresh palate of black currants and pomegranate, followed by black tea, clove and blackberry. The savory and sweet flavors of anise and black licorice whirl alongside black raspberries for an enduring and memorable finish." - Winery
