Description

The 2012 Saint Helena Cabernet is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.

Tasting Notes

The wine is dense with velvety tannins appearing early in the mouth. The Saint Helena Cabernet is a wine guided by a balance of structure and suppleness with notes of ripe red fruits, cherry, strawberry jam and toffee. Decant this wine in its youth. With proper cellaring, it will evolve for ten to twenty years.

Vintage Notes

The extended growing season in 2012 was ideal for flavor and tannin development and retaining acidity
