Big bold and dark. The younger cousin to Harlan and Bond it stands up to some big expectations. The nose is wrapped around a core of red fruit and brambly spices. In the mouth it's dense and lush but showing its youth! Still very drinkable, the fine grained and soft tannins will age this wine for at least 10 years. Shows hints of leather and cocoa with a touch of black pepper on the finish!

Super lush, dark fruit, concentrated, firm tannin structure. Decant for 2 hours, if possible. #themascot

Holy cow, this was so good. I hesitated opening it- thought it should lay down longer, but it was just about perfect. My mascot doesn’t look so tough wearing his Christmas sweater.

The 2012 is generous and welcoming in its youth. Patience Daniel-San it promises deeper layers as the years pass.

Very nice structured Cabernet from the Harlan and Bond family. Would definitely buy it again.
