2012 St Helena Cabernet Sauvignon
Double Gold, Best In Class, 2014 Denver Int'l Wine Competition; Gold Medal, SF Int'l Wine Competition; 92 Pts, Gold Medal, Critics Challenge
Expressive nose of floral dark fruits, red currants, and graphite right out of the bottle. As the wine opens up in the glass, a dusty minerality and notes of oaky mocha finish out the aromatics. On the palate, pure and juicy red fruits mesh with graceful tannins to deliver a mouthwatering texture with expansive breadth and tremendous finesse. It all finishes seamlessly with a smooth, fleshy, and almost glycerin-like texture—fantastic. This bottle will age another decade easily, but it’s more than ready for immediate enjoyment with a good decant!
