Loved this wine in 2014, bought 3 cases...
Then it went through a mediocre phase and I started kicking myself: Why did I buy so much of this when I could had more 555, which was drinking beautifully after 2-3 years in the cellar. But it's come around and has been drinking wonderfully, just as Cam predicted. Our "wow" wine to impress our friends. Clearly, these big fall releases can easily age to 10+ years after harvest date!
Outstanding Cab! Very smooth. Worth the wait.
The BEST Flavor Bomb!
This Cab deserves every award it has received. It has been my go to Cab. I am very sad to see it go.
Not among the best of the 2012s
But not far behind.
Another great cabernet from 2012
I opened up a bottle of this last night and loved it. Very dark color and equally rich on the palate. Smooth finish. Came to the site to order more, so I'm disappointed to see that it is sold out. I guess I'm not surprised though. These 2012's were quite impressive.
Totally Ready Right Now
I am sad that this one is gone. I prefer it to the 555 (which I purchased at the same time). It is full-bodied and rich - smooth, yet tangy. This is a wheelhouse Cab...
Almost in the "buy again" category for me, but not quite. For the money, I much prefer Lot 555.
sad it's already gone
Delicious, ready now, silky smooth, sorry it's gone. If you are like me and purchased this along with some of Cam's other big fall releases, I would choose this for serving now for the holidays over Cam's other 2012 "big cab" releases. It is definitely ready to go and doesn't really require a decant. Opened last night and aerated the first glass and a half. Been savoring the rest tonight poured straight from the bottle- sweetness has definitely intensified, but balanced. While I tend to favor bluer fruit and drier, earthier cabs, and this is surely more red fruit, it is still a thoroughly enjoyable to me and gift worthy if you were lucky enough to pick some up.
superb napa cab
bought some to stuff in the cellar for a decade or two, and very glad we did . . . though, it's gonna be tough to wait that long! This wine is a wonderful ride. Deep, complex, balanced, contemplative. Just a superb wine, and a fine value.
It was good the first night and better the second. Could drink this one now or cellar a couple years.
