Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from our prized I & J blocks in 2012. This fruit was the first to ripen in a long, mild growing season in which we saw long hang times and beautifully ripened fruit. The fruit on the vine was dark and concentrated, and this certainly translated to the wine. The aromatics are lifted and dense, showcasing muddled raspberries, blackcurrant, and black cherry with a touch of granite, mocha, vanilla, and white flowers. The mouthfeel is rich and ample with great weight and concentration. Raspberry cordial, blackcurrant, and black cherry shine through with layers of mocha and vanilla. This wine has hefty, yet beautifully refined tannin, and a precision lent by great acidity and balance.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Estate Oakville adds a lot of structure and even more density to the basic cuvée. It's an inky ruby/purple, has notes of graphite and toasty vanilla, but is dominated by the black cherry and blackcurrant fruit spectrum. Full-bodied, powerful and formidable in extract and richness, this wine will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and keep 25-30 years. It's a stunning example of the vintage from a great terroir.
