A rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color.  The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate,  and toasty oak.  The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKER'S NOTES: 2012 will go down in the books as one of the classic vintages. An ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set and a lengthy stretch of warm but not to hot days presented beautifully flavored grapes. For our efforts, we have been rewarded with a rich, full-bodied Cabernet, deep in color.  The nose of the wine is lively with essences of dark berries, plum, dark chocolate,  and toasty oak.  The sweet, supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle; followed by a pleasant, velvety, lingering finish.
