This Cabernet Sauvignon has an alluring aroma of dark cherry, boysenberry and black currant complemented by dark chocolate and toasted oak. A 2012 vintage, this Napa Valley classic is rich and lush on the palate with cassis, blackberry and fig flavors. The fruit, dark chocolate and wood spices are also featured in the long finish along with fine tannins. This Cab can be classified as seductive after only a few years — imagine what you’ll have in store if you add it to your wine rack and let it evolve over the next decade!

Our 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts alluring, complex aromas of dense dark cherry, boysenberry and blackcurrant fruit supplemented by enticing toasted oak and dark chocolate scents. Rich and lush on the palate with deeply concentrated cassis, blackberry and black fig flavors, the wine culminates in a remarkably long finish showcasing ripe fruit, dark chocolate and wood spice tones framed by finely grained tannins. Seductive now for its luscious fruit, this classic Napa Valley cabernet will evolve beautifully in bottle over the next 7-10 years.

The base Cabernet from this terrific estate is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which checks in as 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It has beautiful notes of crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco, and ground herbs as well as a dense, rich, concentrated style on the palate. This terrific Cabernet is going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and cruise for upwards of 15 years (or more) in cool cellars.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, aged for 17 months in 56% new French oak. Very deep purple-black colored, it has a pronounced nose of crème de cassis, blackberry tart and warm mulberries with touches of Chinese five spice, camphor and tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features loads of black fruit preserves, framed by chewy tannins and great freshness, finishing with a compelling herbal lift.
