Macauley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Lush, plush, with lots of blueberry and crème de cassis fruit, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve looks exceptionally promising. It’s big, it’s full, the tannins are velvety, the acidity is sufficient for definition, and the wine cuts an impressive swath across the palate. This should turn out to be a beauty.
Wine SpectatorThe jazzy oak coats flavors of espresso, vanilla bean, mocha and tobacco amid velvety blueberry, cassis and berry pie notes, ending with a long, broad, full-bodied aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. 212 cases made.
