The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which comes 100% from their estate high on Spring Mountain, is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot, aged two years in three-fourths new French oak and the rest second-year barrels. This wine displays sweet tannins and an elegant, almost St-Julien-like style, with cedar wood, licorice, black and red currants, and underlying earthy nuances. Medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, beautiful complexity already, and a long, rich, authoritative finish, this wine exemplifies the forwardness and drama of the 2012 vintage, but promises to evolve beautifully for 15-20 more years.  92+ points
