2012 Henry Brothers Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage   |  2012 2011 2009

Softened by 20% Merlot, and aged in a healthy majority of new French oak, this is a smoky, smooth and tannic wine with savory characteristics of pencil and cedar that outweigh the fruitier aspects of mountain blackberry.

Description


Harvest & Winemaking


The 2012 vintage was a producer’s dream. A textbook winter with a decent amount of rain, lead into a dry spring with a dash of rain around budbreak, followed by a moderately warm summer and a fairly dry fall. Although grape tonnage was up in all vineyards and varieties, pushing harvest later into the fall, quality was amazing. The euphoria around the valley at the wonderful flavors coming from the fermentors, and subsequently the wine, was and continues to be, ubiquitous.
