Vine Cliff Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Concentrated in black currant, cedar and olive, this has subdued tannins that are chalky and smooth. The aroma takes on pretty lavender and violet connotations that allure. Dried herb and black pepper mingle on the finish. This wine is lovely now, but should cellar nicely through 2020.
Wine SpectatorFeatures a toasty oak overlay, adding dimension to the taut core of dried dark berry, licorice and tobacco leaf flavors, ending with savory tannins. Drink now through 2026. 1,192 cases made.
