Wine & Spirits 92 points - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is a much more friendly, supple, fruit-forward style of wine with loads of creme de cassis, plum, licorice and spice. This opulent, full-bodied wine is certainly going to be a big hit with consumers. It is broad, savory and pretty much everything one wants in a delicious Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Bring on the grilled meats! This wine should drink well for 10-15 years.
Opens with rich scents of black fruit and cedar. This wine is fruit-forward with intense cassis, plum and blackberry flavors, it's balanced with notes of tobacco, spice, and a solid structure for length on the palate, finishing with a touch of dark chocolate. 20 months in 30% new and 70% once and twice-filled French oak barrels.
