This is perhaps the best Mockingbird Hill wine I have had. It’s rocking gorgeous wine that is aromatic, lush, concentrated, expressive and delicious. I will be stashing a case of this wine in my cellar and enjoy it when I’m looking for that perfect Cab for dinner. It’s got everything going for it as its from a top Estate in Napa Valley, made by a great winemaker and from one of Napa’s best recent Cab vintages. This Reserve Cabernet has an elegant and expressive nose of dark cherries, mocha, plum, black raspberry and mocha. The palate is lush and silky with layers of well-focused flavors including blackberry cream, espresso, toasty vanilla oak, crème de cassis, and chocolate, with touches of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. The palate is suave with lush yet bold fruit with nicely integrated rich oak and sumptuous flavors. It will pair nicely with Beef Wellington, Chateaubriand, Beef braised in a red wine sauce, or veal medallions in a rosemary garlic sauce. It’s drinking nicely now but will continue to drink well for another decade. 1,091 cases were produced.

2012 Reserve Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
 
Winemaker’s Notes
Vibrant purple and red hues present in this Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberry and black plum dominate the aromatic profile and are complemented with mocha and toasted vanillin oak. Flavors continue with blackberry and black cherry, evidence of toasted barrel maturation, and a hint of anise. Enjoy!
 
Vintage & Winemaking
The season of 2012 commenced with a very dry and cold winter. The lack of water was concerning as this persisted through the end of February, while the Sierra’s had minimal snowfall. March eased the burden with 9 inches of rain, therefore replenishing groundwater reserves. A warm spring followed, then a moderate to hot June, July and August. Excellent ripening weather through the summer, which was then followed by a warm September, allowing a good even and progressive harvest. October kicked off with a hot start followed by even, warm conditions. 2012 provided an excellent growing season. The fruit was harvested in the cool morning hours, then crushed to tank where fermentation commenced after a brief period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 20 months of maturation.
