Futo OV Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

$199.99

Limited New Release from Nap Cult producer Futo.94 Points Wine Spectator:  "Delivers a taut, focused core of mocha, espresso-laced blackberry, dusty earth, dried herb and tabacco leaf flavors, ending with a cedary cigar box note somewhat reminiscent of a Bordeaux. Caberent Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030."Robert Parker:  "...I was blown away by the wines I tasted with Tom Futo and his team, headed by winemaker Jason Exposto. Readers should make an effort to taste Futo’s second wine, OV, a nod to Oakford Vineyards, the previous winery on these grounds. Futo’s OV is easily one of the best second wines in the valley. In just about any other winery it would be the top wine. And a great one, at that. As for the flagship FutoYwell, it is pretty amazing in all three vintages I tasted. Futo fans will be happy to learn that the winery is working with a 25 year-old parcel in Stags’ Leap that will inform a new bottling if the quality of fruit is up to the estate’s fanatical standards."

We hand this one second thinking it would be the bolder and edgier of the two. Not so! Very pleased and nuanced but if anything understated
