2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright purple. Intense, smoke-accented aromas of cherry and blackcurrant, with Indian spice and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering energetic dark fruit flavors and a hint of chewing tobacco. Closes tangy and long, with slow-building tannins and very good focus.
