93 pts, Wine Enthusiast92 pts, Wine SpectatorThe grapes for the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from a single vineyard at the corner of Oakville cross road. This knoll-top vineyard is home to young vines that are expertly maintained in exquisite well-drained, red and orange soil, and are densely planted meter by meter for sun exposure and grape ripening maturity.Our 2012 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon opens with bold aromas of mocha and star anise. Displaying classic Oakville structure, this deliciously complex wine boasts flavors of cassis berry, milk chocolate and subtle spice that coat the palate. With supple, silky tannins, the 2012 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon culminates in a long, smooth finish.
91 pts, Wine EnthusiastThe grapes for the St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from two main vineyards located just north of the winery. These vineyards are located on gravelly alluvial fan soil with excellent drainage, an essential component in high quality fruit development. The vines are less vigorous in this area of the Napa Valley, producing smaller berries and lower yields, for more concentrated, intense wines with good tannin structure. The wine is produced to showcase the terroir and distinct flavor characteristics of our cherished vineyards.With inviting aromas of fresh strawberry rhubarb pie and red fruits, our 2012 St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon tempts the palate. Rich flavors of vanilla and crème caramel are balanced by dark red fruit characteristics and a touch of oak. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a broad entry with a harmonious balance of density and depth, and sweet tannins then lead to a long, satisfying finish.
