The 2012 vintage marks the 17th anniversary of these stunning wines. A true testament to the rich history of BV, and shepherded into production by our renowned winemaker Jeffrey Stambor, the 2012 Clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon is available in limited quantity.
Every bit as good as the Clone 4, but slightly different even though it is similar in style, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 6. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet, loamy soil, forest floor, underbrush, blackcurrant and black cherry characteristics. Medium to full-bodied with pure fruit as well as a long finish, it should drink well for 15 years. - Robert Parker (10/2014)
“A very balanced and refined cabernet with blackberry, blackcurrant and floral character. Medium-to full-bodied, subtle and complex. So drinkable now but will improve with age.” – James Suckling
This is a handcrafted wine in every sense of the word. The pronounced bouquet shows ripe concentrated blackberry and black olive notes. Intense, black fruit flavors are framed by firm, mouth-coating tannins and moderate acidity. A chewy finish and great fruit concentration suggest that this wine could use at least 8 to 10 years of aging.
