WE 89 WS 88 Vinous 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - This value-driven wine has a touch of spearmint and bay leaf on the nose, and remains savory and herbal on the palate. A bit of heft builds around black cherry and raspberry, ending seamlessly with only the faintest taste of toasted oak.
According to Wine Spectator - Very appealing, with a supple, graceful presence and modest currant, anise, loamy earth and new leather scents. Ends clean and simple. Drink now.
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, supple wine with plenty of near-term appeal. Sweet herbs, red berries, flowers and leather meld together nicely in the glass. The 2012 is soft, supple and open. I expect the 2012 will offer its best drinking earlier rather than later."
Tasting Notes - "A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, our 2012 has aromas of blackberries, dried herbs and dried floral which follow to the palate on a rich wave of concentrated flavor. There is the textural sensation of dark chocolate on the deliciously long, lingering finish." 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, & 1% Malbec. 14.5% ABV.
