(2012 Vintage) The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied and balanced with savory aromas of black cherry, cocoa and baking spice. Concentrated flavors of rich black cherry, blackberry, spice and toasted oak unfold gracefully across the palate with well-integrated fruit and tannins, and a long finish.
This rich, fruit-forward wine calls for succulent, flavorful dishes such as grilled tenderloin with roasted shallots, creamy bleu cheeses, pepper-rubbed pork chops or duck breast with grilled plums.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown in vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, each adding a layer of nuanced complexity to the final blend. The 2012 vintage includes fruit from Napa Valley's premier vineyards in Atlas Peak, Oak Knoll District, Rutherford, Oakville, Diamond Mountain, Stags Leap District, Mount Veeder, Spring Mountain and Howell Mountain.
Decanter(2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Sumptuous blackcurrant and cassis nose with hint of liquorice. Good finesse and structure on the palate with silky tannins and excellent balance. A relatively light and easy drinking wine at a seductively low price.
