Vintage Notes

The 2012 vintage is characterized by a very cold winter followed by extremely high temperatures from late spring to early summer; this lead to an accelerated increase of sugar rate and a decrease of grape weight. Then, temperatures dramatically decreased therefore slowing down the ripening cycle on the vine; as a result 2012 wines are very fruity and aromatic, with an acidity found typically when the end of the summer growing season is cooler.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Intense garnet red. Predominance of spicy notes of thyme and green pepper in harmony with an intense black fruit and figs background. A gentle and full wine. In the mouth, it reveals a precise and long finish.
Stephen Tanzer - 90 pts Bright, saturated ruby-red. Dark berries, black cherry, menthol, licorice and sexy oak spices on the subdued but complex. Intensely flavored, supple and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth lift and incipient complexity to its dark berry and spicecake flavors. Finishes with suave, broad tannins and refreshing peppery lift. This sophisticated cabernet is still very young.
Food Pairing Notes
Slow cooked lamb with spicy sauce and fresh salad or mashed potatoes.
