The Meteor Vineyard, a remarkable site in beautiful Coombsville (across the street from the famed Farella Vineyard) is the source of an under the radar winery of amazing quality. 94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Meteor's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Perseid is sumptuous and beautifully expressive in the glass. The 2012 is built on layer after layer of flavor. Raspberry jam, cloves, new leather and menthol are all precise and delineated throughout. Firm beams of tannin give the wine its energy and sense of drive. This is a terrific showing from Meteor." 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville’s volcanic soils, this wine reflects the impressive 2012 growing season. I loved the wine’s dark hue, the warm, brambly fruit and the deft, dancing acidity underneath. The power and the richness in the glass is tempered by that freshness and the bright focus of the acidity. A fantastic cabernet discovery and perfect for the wine lover that thinks they already have everything.
Raspberry jam, floral notes w/ cloves, cocoa and menthol - very, very good
