Gemstone Vineyards Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$94.99

Fantastic new release from superstar winemaker Philippe Melka. Limited. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is spectacular. A beautifully built wine with an opaque purple color and a wonderful nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, spring flowers and a hint of smoky oak, this medium to full-bodied, well-delineated 2012 exhibits terrific purity and density as well as a long finish. This superb 100% Cabernet Sauvignon will spend 21 months in 80% new French oak. It may turn out to be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Gemstone has made to date." 94 Points Wine Spectator: "Effusively fruity, with juicy currant, blackberry and wild berry flavors that evolve from supple and silky to firm on the finish. Drink now through 2026."

Highly extracted. Inky in the glass. Dark and brooding. Finish goes on. Delicious.

House guests gone, it seems like a good time for something good. What a turnaround this has taken! Oak has integrated and it's now a powerful beauty. Dark berries, cherries, plums and a touch of fresh flowers? On the finish. Tannins are moderate and acidity balances the opulence well. One hour decant.

The wine is being swallowed alive in oak at this point. There was a lot hiding but this needs to integrate better. I'm holding off on anymore for a while.
