Macdonald Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$699

Our 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts alluring, complex aromas of dense dark cherry, boysenberry and blackcurrant fruit supplemented by enticing toasted oak and dark chocolate scents. Rich and lush on the palate with deeply concentrated cassis, blackberry and black fig flavors, the wine culminates in a remarkably long finish showcasing ripe fruit, dark chocolate and wood spice tones framed by finely grained tannins. Seductive now for its luscious fruit, this classic Napa Valley cabernet will evolve beautifully in bottle over the next 7-10 years.

Plush with dark purple fruit. Soft velvet texture. Going through a tight phase but still enormously enjoyable. 2012 MacDonald is a treat.

Amazing wine. Full bodied and rich from a very short decant.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, racy and explosive to the core. An exotic tapestry of plums, sweet black cherries, smoke, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and dark spices race across the palate. Ample and intense, the 2012 has more than enough depth to fill its broad-shouldered frame. The 2012 is the most open-knit vintage made here so far. I imagine it will provide several decades of fine drinking. In keeping with the style of the vintage, the 2012 is quite generous and resonant, with a demi-glace like sense of silkiness and unctuosity. This is the first vintage that incorporates the younger 20 year-old vines. Next to some of the other vintages made so far, the 2012 is a bit monochromatic, but it is striking for its sheer opulence. Just 143 cases were made. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct 2015)

First Macdonald for me; hopefully not the last one as this is truly terrific stuff! Savoury and youthfully tight, yet with great fruit and a nice Rutherford Dust component, which adds loads of interest and complexity. Beautiful already thanks to its polished tannins but better to hide these for another 10 years. One of the most impressive young Napa Valley CS encountered so far. Well done!

Red (and blue) fruits, leather, mild olive. Tannins provided a memorable long finish. Great now, even better later.

Tannic on opening, this is quite an ager. After several hours it softened, but this is one I would like to try in 3+ years. Awesome stuff @David L

Love this wine. No question new world, but with a touch of classic older world poise and structure. Thank you for sharing, Tina!
