Lindstrom Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU 24554


Classically Stags Leap District in character, this fully ripe Cabernet shows bright cherry and mocha tones in abundance on the aromas. Open and expressive immediately upon pulling the cork, this wine will develop more nuanced dark tones of sandalwood, almond and warm raspberries with time in the glass. On the palate, the wine is bright with fresh fruit flavors. Fine-grained tannins create a sense of elegance and finesse at entry and throughout the palate profile. The finish is again bright with essence of red fruits, combined with just a touch of toasty oak.

Wine AdvocateFar more impressive is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. A barrel sample looks much more exuberant, offering a wonderful display of creme de cassis, creamy oak, cedarwood, baking spices and unsmoked, high quality cigar tobacco. This full-bodied, opulent, richly fruity 2012 should drink well for 15+ years.
