Vintage Notes – After a difficult and rainy year in 2011, 2012 was primed to be a great growing year due to the rains of the previous season. A cool and dry spring gave way into a hot and long summer, with no interruptions or rain events before harvest. The fruit matured beautifully without any overly-hot days, overly-cold nights, or unwanted rain events. Close to a “text-book perfect” growing season.

 

Visual – A lovely opaque hue of black plum at the heart of the glass, with a blood-orange tint towards the outer rim of the wine.

 

Aroma- First impressions are of a lean mineral spring, wild flowers, green peppercorn, and the sophistication of age. Hints of jalapeno skin and the same smell as standing outside in the early cool of the morning on our vineyard during the Fall.

 

Palate- Juicy red cherry flavors with a lush and mouthwatering palate. Age-mild tannins in the midpalate flow into an ultra-soft finish with lingering and enticing flavors of plum and salted fig. An incredible example of Cabernet Sauvignon.
