2012 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard, Napa Valley

2012 marked the beginning of the vine maturity stage for this amazing vineyard.  Located a stone's throw from several famous vineyards such as Dr. Crane, Bressler, Hayne and Las Piedras, this neighborhood has pedigree. 2012 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard, Napa Valley

Harvested mid-season, everything we hoped this vineyard would become emerged and came together with this vintage.  Violet purple in appearance, notes of graphite, blackberries, spice and loamy notes intoxicate the senses.  While this is a very masculine effort, the sweetness of the fruit and finesse of the tannins give this wine a polished, impressive mid palate and a finish that is framed by round ripe tannins, which allow the wine to sail on and on.

Drinking nicely now with a short decant or age for 8-10 years for further complexities to emerge.
