Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. The 2012 vintage has yielded a lush and appealing expression of Decoy Cabernet with alluring black cherry and raspberry jam aromas, as well as more subtle notes of nutmeg, spice and chocolate. On the palate, lovely layers of raspberry and plum are supported by excellent structure and seamlessly integrated oak. Barrel aged 12 months in 100% French oak (35% new).

Suggested as a choice with my Dinner meal along with the Mercer Chardonnay. Went with the Chardonnay, but this one was pretty good too.

Cherry jam and thick oak on the uptake. Citrus peels commingle with leather gloves on the tongue. Tangy zing-zag on the finish.

Very nice wine with fillet mignon. Smooth and not over-powering.

They should put warning labels on wine that's this easy going down. It was delicious before, during, and after dinner.

Normally I'm not a huge Cabernet Sauvignon fan, however, this is not your normal cab. Comparatively, it's fairly light bodied. If you're looking for a big robust cab, keep looking. If you like cabs, and are entertaining someone who likes something a little less bold, give this a go! The bouquet featured notes of Chocolate, Black Cherry, a little vanilla. Then on the taste it had a slight plum & black cherry taste, tinged with oak. A lingering berry taste rounds out this well balanced wine. Wouldn't stand up to a ribeye, but I wouldn't hesitate to pair this with a lean cut like a Chateaubriand or Filet. Ready to drink immediately.

This classic Cabernet showcases elements of currant, cherry, plum and olive. Great body and a long finish!

This complex and focused Sauvignon Blanc seamlessly combines mouth-filling fruit with refreshing acidity.

Lush and enticing with aromas that strike an appealing balance between vibrant cranberry and deeper, dark berry notes, with sophisticated hints of white pepper and forest floor. The palate is rich and beautifully structured, offering a lush core of dark, ripe fruit wrapped in smooth, firmly textured tannins.
