2012 California Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our most complex wines. Barreled for nearly 2 years in new French oak, this inky purple , medium bodied wine introduces itself with subdued deep red fruit (think cherry and plumb). After a few sips and swirls the fruit comes forward and a not-so-subtle notion of slate permeates aura. The finish is refined and distinguished making this wine a perfect pair for a hearty meal such as a steak or pasta with red sauce. As with most cabernet sauvignon, time is a friend. This 2012 drinks beautifully today but will mature and improve well past the end of the decade.
