The long, dry 2012 growing season produced a Cabernet with extraordinary harmony and balance. It's seamlessness makes the task of describing its attractive attributes more difficult than usual.
The nose is loaded with ripe fruit, varietally true earthiness and a touch of sweet oak toast.
On the palate, the tannins melt from start to finish. The range of concentrated black fruits is sweetly extracted and ever present. Notes of black licorice, anise seed, rootbeer and alluring cab perfume dance in and out without dominating. The finish is full of watering, pleasing fruit and polished tannins. We expect this wine to show as beautifully after years of cellaring as it does today.
Pairing: Perfect with LMR Grass-fed beef, braised lamb shanks, or with roasted game.
