Winemaker Notes

Rich deep dark berry color with creamy mocha-espresso flavors is the first impression of this wine. The tannins are well-integrated with the fruit and create a long finish that keeps going. It's full-bodied with a saturated finish while accompanied by bright acidity and infused by black current and cooked blueberries. Balanced and intense, it showcases what Bordeaux varieties can perform when managed correctly.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

Starting with their straight Cabernet Release, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It has classic blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and earthy qualities in its full-bodied profile, and it stays lively and fresh, with notable purity of fruit. It will evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.

TP 90
Tasting Panel

A top wine in its price category; rifined black currant aromas and flavors; well-built on the palate; fine persistent finish.
