Merryvale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Wine AdvocateElegant and savory, with plenty of finesse and complexity, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa shows all the friendly sides of this vintage. Beautiful brightness, purity, potential balance and equilibrium, power without excess and sweet tannin, this wine is a rather classic Cabernet Sauvignon. With lots of black fruits, flowers and no hard edges, it's not a blockbuster, but very well-crafted. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
Wine EnthusiastA soft, easygoing red wine that's dry and classically made, this is more on the full-bodied style than slim. Chalky tannins provide substantial texture alongside chocolate and pinches of pencil shavings, finished in blackberry pie.
Wine SpectatorOffers a solid core of dense wild berry and blackberry flavors, supported by firm tannins and cedary oak nuances. Ends a bit clipped. Drink now through 2024. 3,048 cases made.
