A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate opens with compelling crème de cassis, preserved plums and dried mulberries with touches of sandalwood, tilled soil, unsmoked cigars and charcuterie. Big, rich and full, the palate explodes with black and blue fruit preserves and spicy layers, framed by velvety tannins and finishing with fantastic freshness and depth.
