Flanagan Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU 28362


The defining attributes of our 2012 Flanagan Cabernet are its ripe, seamless palate and its power. This wine displays our classic profile of a floral bouquet of violets and irises, but it is the palate that really displays the richness of the 2012 vintage. Deep black fruits, warm rock, mocha, and savory notes of olive and bay leaf flow seamlessly together in a truly beautiful glass of wine. I love that our wines reflect vintage character. The 2006 was opulent, the 2009 structured, the 2011 elegant, and the 2012 powerful. Enjoy!

Wine AdvocateThe primordial, broodingly backward 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 4-5 more years of bottle age. Lots of blackberries, barbecue spice, licorice and creosote characteristics along with serious tannins are present in this big, brooding Cabernet that will be somewhat controversial. Forget it for five years and drink it over the following 15+ years.
