Classic Napa. Fruit forward and smooth. Cassis. And good structure.

As I opened a bottle of their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in French oak (54% new), I see a deep ruby red with focused aromas of black fruit and complex spice. The palate shows focused sweet ripe dark fruit, black currants and black raspberry, with savory oak, leather and cacao. The wine is well balanced, nicely developed round tannins, great structure for getting better in a few years. This is an approachable wine, perfect to drink now as well as for future aging, but why wait?

Still in its prime. Not fruit forward. Still balanced. Rounded. Enjoy it now.
