This is a handcrafted wine in every sense of the word. Medium-full bodied, it has great textural richness and length on the palate, with firm, rich tannins melting into intense flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, mocha and roasted coffee. This vintage should mature well for 10 years or more.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 4 offers sweet notes of cassis, licorice, lead pencil shavings, new saddle leather and spice. There is great fruit on the attack, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish. Consume it over the next 12-15 years. - Robert Parker (10/2014)
“This is a dense and rich red with plum and walnut character. Hints of chocolate. Medium to full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Ripe fruit and walnut undertones here. Structured and solid.” – James Suckling
