2012 Vintage Notes

2012 afforded Napa with an ideal growing season from beginning to end. A mild spring led to a good fruit set, then summer and fall brought warm temperatures without any heat waves. All the fruit enjoyed a long, slow ripening, indicating early that the Cabernet would be dark, rich and age worthy as with the 2001, 2002 and 2007 seasons. The saturation of color is amazing - the wines are almost black, and the Bordeaux varieties are heavy with sweet tannins that are not drying at all. One of the largest harvests on record, the only challenged presented to Cultivar was where to put all the grapes.

2012 Cultivar Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

From a winemakers’ perspective, when you get fantastic fruit from a harvest like 2012, it’s important to let the grapes shine and to make sure we don’t screw it up. We also need to control our enthusiasm for the quality! Our 2012 Napa Cabernet strikes that wonderful balance of intense, dark fruit with sweet tannins and refined structure. A touch of new oak comes through on the nose with hints of vanilla, violets and warm spices. The wine is dark and rich with ripe blackcurrant, plum and dark cherry flavors, complemented by an elegant finish that will leave you wanting more.
