2012 Right Bank 750ml
Aroma: The aromatics on the 2012 Right Bank are vibrant and
defined. The nose packed with blackberry with streaks of red berries,
plums, dark coco, leather, blue violets & roses, bright, clove, anise,
Taste: The palate follows the nose and reveals wonderful balance.
The oak and grape tannins are seamless, the acid is bright but does
not detract from how supple and approachable the wine is , even in its
youth. The wine has the framework to hold up for 30 years, but good
luck waiting that long!
The Vintage: 2012 was a vintage that winemakers pray for due to its
nearly perfect weather conditions for grape growing. The spring
kicked off with a well timed bud-break, then followed with nearly
perfect pollination, and fruit-set. The summer was dry with warm but
not excessively hot days, and cool nights. The harvest yielded a large,
and high quality crop that flowed in from the vineyards to processing
at a slow and steady pace.
68% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot
