Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$64.99

Cakebread Cabernet - One of Napa's Valley's Classic Cabs and the 2012 is one of the best ever. Fragrant boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and Mission fig aromas comprise the fresh, fruitful nose of the Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The first sip of the wine reveals a big, boldly structured Cabernet with deeply concentrated black fruit flavors and intriguing dusty, loamy and mineral-y tones that add wonderful dimension and complexity. Boasting an undercurrent of soft, plush fruit that will emerge further with aging, this sophisticated, yet approachable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will reward another 5-7 years’ cellaring. Robert Parker: "..among the finest “regular” Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted from Cakebread.

As I opened a bottle of their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in French oak (54% new), I see a deep ruby red with focused aromas of black fruit and complex spice. The palate shows focused sweet ripe dark fruit, black currants and black raspberry, with savory oak, leather and cacao. The wine is well balanced, nicely developed round tannins, great structure for getting better in a few years. This is an approachable wine, perfect to drink now as well as for future aging, but why wait?
