2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
92+ Points - "Powerful and ample in the glass, the 2012 possesses remarkable intensity. Big, chewy tannins support the ample finish."
- Antonio Galloni, VinousMedia.com, December 14, 2014
The 2012 growing season was near perfect, with ideal spring budbreak and warm, steady days balanced by cool nights. The steady weather continued into the fall, resulting in optimal ripening conditions at harvest. Our 2012 Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of blueberry, rose petals and violets, which are balanced by a cleansing minerality and silky tannins.
