Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

On the nose, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth and black pepper.

Medium to full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, oak, vanilla, light cloves, leather, earth, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in length on the finish, with firm tannins and spices.

A nice Cabernet from Livermore Valley in California. Drinkable by itself, and very enjoyable. A good food wine too. Nicely balanced and interesting, with a nice mouthfeel. I liked it.
Much better than the 2011 vintage.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
