2012 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Vibrant and concentrated, this robust Cabernet Sauvignon exudes confidence and character right out the gate.  Dark and intense to the rim, an abundance of red fruit and dark fruit aromas 2012 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley fill your senses.  Cranberry, sweet cherry and cola mix with sweet spices and a hint of molasses for a nicely layered introduction to the wine.  These characters combine with aromas of creme de cassis, cocoa powder and traces of spice.  On the palate, perfectly ripened boysenberry fruit glides effortlessly across the mid palate with minimal tannin restraint.  Dark plum and volcanic mineralty are intermixed with well-integrated oak overtones.  On the finish, layer upon layer of complexity and natural acidity frame this beauty and lead into a "standing ovation" finish.

While this wine is approachable now, cellar it for a minimum of three years to bring out its "A" game and the many layers this wine holds.
