"The 2012 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon offers intriguing aromas of cocoa powder, wild blackberries and currants. The wine has a plush entry that fills the mouth with dark blueberry and wild berry flavors along with hints of spice. The palate is rich and concentrated with big, yet round, tannins that lead to a finish of black currant with hints of sweet oak. The wine’s structured tannins, rich fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine’s ability to age. Enjoy with coffee marinated Wagyu beef with a fig glaze, Osso Buco or a hearty wild mushroom risotto." —winemaker
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. is a paragon of elegance and finesse, yet doesn't cheat the taster on flavor. Dense ruby/purple with round, juicy, earthy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, underbrush and forest floor, the wine is fragrant, medium to full-bodied, soft, seductive and round. This is a lovely, juicy, pure style of wine to drink over the next 10-15 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Offers a dusty, savory, loamy mix of dried berry, herb, underbrush and dark berry flavors, ending with a long, focused finish and layers of complexity. Drink now through 2028. 5,200 cases made." —James Laube, Wine Spectator

"This estate-grown wine honors the historical vineyard that brought the Napa Valley worldwide attention for Cabernet. It offers both complexity and elegance, as well as an herbal underbrush accented by tobacco. Chocolate, caramel and coffee add to the intrigue around smooth, velvety tannins." —Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon SLV stands out in this range for its precise, chiseled fruit and overall elegance. At the same time, there is plenty of depth and density in the glass. Ash, smoke, graphite and crushed rocks add nuance, but a hint of sweetness on the finish is a bit distracting." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
