WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - This Cabernet Sauvignon—with smaller amounts of Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot—offers satisfying freshness on the palate, with a backbone of singed herb and high-toned cherry. Stuffed with lush blackberry and cassis on the palate, it’s an all-around likable wine, aged in both French and American oak, which provide a toasty oak note throughout.
Winemakers Notes - Our Cabernet Sauvignon showed a beautiful degree of richness and structure this vintage because of the season’s excellent weather. We added small amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot to enrich the complexity of the fruit profile.
Full-bodied with sturdy tannins, deep, layered fruit character, and a lushness on the palate, our 2012 Director’s Cut Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a mélange of red and black berry flavors, cherries, cassis, notes of lavender, and a broad range of spices and toasted oak. Will show best with a few years of aging, but can be enjoyed now after an hour or two of decanting. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. 13.8% ABV.
