Intense, overt aromas of blackberry and raspberry; hints of tobacco and herbs tempting you towards your first sip. The wine is classic Cabernet on the palate with enticing flavors of mature plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate; lengthened by the integrated background of cedar,nutmeg and vanilla.
95% Cabernet Sauvginon, 4% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec
2012 was a wonderful vintage, a winemaker’s vintage. The season was very consistent, timely and manageable. The vines reacted beautifully to the weather which allowed for full development and maturity. The wine aged 24 months in 70% new French oak. One of the finest expressions of the Rock Cairn Vineyard, ever!
