This 2012 is a blockbuster powerhouse wine from this vintage. Aromas are deep, ripe, and intense with pure berry jam, lush black cherry, and layers of toasty sweet French oak. Explosive flavors follow the amazing aromatics. Just a delicious big lush mouthcoating wine. Our early ripening Calistoga vineyards served us well once again since the Barrett and Barrett blocks carry such a light crop. The typically low yielding vines produce tiny concentrated berries which result in this very cool dense and delicious Cab. It's the best possible combination blend of balance and finesse, purity of character, amazing length, and age worthiness. Don't miss it!
97 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. Rich, racy and totally voluptuous in the glass, the 2012 flows with seemingly endless layers of fruit. This is a decidedly dark, powerful brooding 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with real class. Dark cherry jam, wild flowers, gravel, mint and dark spice meld into the unctuous, riveting finish."
