Description

Details

WA 92 JS 92 WE 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is a much more friendly, supple, fruit-forward style of wine with loads of créme de cassis, plum, licorice and spice. This opulent, full-bodied wine is certainly going to be a big hit with consumers. It is broad, savory and pretty much everything one wants in a delicious Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Bring on the grilled meats! This wine should drink well for 10-15 years."

According to James Suckling - "Shows richness and balance with blackberry and black currant character. Full-bodied, firm and silky. Tight and serious. Needs two or three years to soften."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "Accented by 11% Merlot and smaller percentages of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this smooth, oaky wine offers dark black fruit and vanilla, with a swirl of bittersweet chocolate on the finish. Ready to enjoy now, it’s robustly made and in balance."

According to Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherries, plums, spices, mocha and new leather are all laced together in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. Attractive floral and spice notes add sweet on the racy finish. Drink this feminine, medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon over the next few years."

Tasting Notes - "The gorgeous dark and dense magenta hues give sense to this wine’s concentration and power. The bouquet is loaded with intense aromas of cassis, hints of dry mission figs, and ripe plum compote that mélange in harmony, enhanced by cedar and leather scents. The palate is lush with savory dark fruit and a hint of sweet oak and black pepper. The wine is well structured with soft tannins that envelop the palate." 14.5% ABV.

Though not as refined as the reserve cab, this is a prototypical Napa cab. Deep purple to the edge. Ripe berries
