Textbook (Jonathan & Susan Pey) Mise En Place Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$139.99

Textbook's 2012 "Mise en place" Cabernet is a small-production discovery from the heart of Napa Valley's Oakville District, sourced from a vineyard next to Screaming Eagle.  Beautiful Cab for a reasonable price - try it while its still available.95 Points Robert Parker: "The inky/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mise en Place comes from the rocky east side of Oakville, and spent 24 months in French oak. Playing it closer to the vest than its siblings, with coaxing, it reveals some extraordinarily ripe, rich blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, scorched earth and wet rocks. It has tremendous upside potential, but at present it is the least flattering of the Textbook Cabernets. Full-bodied and powerful, it should turn out to be a beauty, but buyers should plan on deferring their gratification for 2-4 years. Watch the magic unfold over the following two decades."

Good showing, but overall, this lacks symmetry. Tannins are showing well, but acidity is sharp on the mid-palette (per my son). Nice sweetness and concentration. Finishes a touch vegetal, and disjointed. From magnum. This has relaxed with air-time. Upping the rating a touch as a result.

An excellent showing! Wonderful, full notes of cassis, leather and boysenberry on the nose. Deep dark fruit on the palate. Moderate tannins that will further integrate with time. Lengthy finish. I believe no less an authority than @Cathy Corison described this cuvée as "en pointe". Enough said!

Very approachable on night two, with very little variation from yesterday. Same food pairing, aka leftovers, and I would say an ever so slight improvement. Very impressed in general and especially at this price point!

Quality product. Muted nose. Excellent mouthfeel. Slight heat. Finish is cut short.

We agree that this 2012, while young is very drinkable. Only 12 barrels made and I wish I'd have picked up a case. We'll be back.
