2012 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Leopoldina Vineyard is perched high on the legendary Oakville Bench, which boasts a terroir rich in red clay and rocky slopes - the source of some of the world’s most sought-after wines.
The resulting 2012 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon is richly textured and structure-driven. Characterized by aromas and deep flavors of cassis, dark cherries, floral pomegranate, and sage, this wine is tightly wound, yet supple. Its texture and structure compact and elongate along the mid-palate, yielding both width and astounding length. A delicate I-beam (you’ll get it when you taste it) of density with laser precision defines the focused and mesmerizing finish.
praise for 2012 leopoldina cabernet sauvignon
"A big-time winner, the dense purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard possesses savory blackcurrant and blackberry fruit deftly touched by toasty oak. The wine builds incrementally on the palate to a full-bodied crescendo at the finish. The tannins are sweet but noticeable, and the wine is long and rich. It should be accessible young yet last for two decades."
"A gorgeous effort, brimming with ripe, rich blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, graphite and cedary oak flavors, culminating in a tight, focused finish that echoes hints of chocolate brownie and spice. Drink now through 2028..."
