Sneak Peak: this wine won't be released until the end of the year but, you guys, this 2012 Reserve Cru is an amazing wine! It's 100% Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 100% French Taransaud Oak - probably the most famous French cooper out there. There's anise on the nose - a Coombsville signature - and dark, black fruits. Don't even think about red fruits...they're nowhere to be found...this is strictly black cherry, black currant, black plum - dark dark dark! This wine is dense, chewy, and has beautiful tannins. This is going to age beautifully, and is truly a spectacularly complex and balanced wine. Mmmmm!

This is a special wine. After a couple hours of decanting (because it's still very young) it opened up nicely. Black cherry, plum, and a touch of oak spiciness. Beginning, middle and end, the flavor expands across the palate and lingers for ages. It is dense and viscous, but the fresh acidity balances it perfectly. Perfect for our Christmas prime rib dinner.
