SPOTTSWOODE CABERNET SAUVIGNON ESTATE ST. HELENA NAPA VALLEY 2012
The opaque purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a glorious bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, a Pauillac-like lead pencil note, and background new oak. The overall impression is one of restraint combined with richness. This full-bodied effort possesses good acidity and ripe tannin. It has been crafted for the long-term. The hallmarks of great Spottswoode wines are their purity and elegance combined with serious power. The 2012 has that in abundance. This youthful, reserved Cabernet will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades or more. 96+ Points. eRobertParker.com # , #215 (Oct 2014) Drink 2017 - 2037
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, powerful and sensual, with plenty of the vintage's trademark richness and radiance. Over the last year, the 2012 has gained considerable volume. Hints of mocha, plum, new leather and spices meld into the richly textured, voluptuous finish. In 2012, the blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
