Heavier weight and meaty, juicy but not that interesting.

The 2012 vintage is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, and 3% Merlot. The wine was aged 21 months in 50% new French oak barrels. The wine represents a diverse range of carefully selected clones and rootstocks from vineyards in the Stags Leap District, including the hillside terraces of our Poetry Vineyard, our Twin Peaks Vineyard estate, and a few select neighboring vineyards.

Deep dark berries. Tar and cedar. All fill the nose. Easy right of the bottle but more luxurious after it decanted for a while. Beautiful.

Quiet beast. On the nose, you think it's going to punch you in the face like a 1999s Mike Tyson jab... once you actually try the wine, it's equivalent to Michaelangelo's sculpture of David: masterpiece. Soft. Velvety. Memorable.

Sourced primarily from hillside terraces of Poetry and Twin Peaks Vineyards. Dark deep red with complex aromas of black fruit, earthy spice and sweet notes. Composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 3% Merlot, the palate shows fruit forward rich dark berry flavors with notes of licorice and cacao, approachable tannins, well balanced. Lingering finish ends with earthy tones. Can age well for another decade.

Some spice ala Malbec with a smooth finish. This wine makes me silly. Beautiful aroma.
