A beautiful and fresh red with flowers and blue fruits along with raspberries and blackberries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, and wonderful length. Finesse. Fine-grained. Harmony and balance. Sexy and very, very beautiful. Magic and seamless.
The 2012 Cappella, probably has less Cabernet Franc than his other cuvées but at least 25-30%. This wine has closed down since I had it from barrel last year, but that probably reflects more on its post-bottling dormancy. A wine of great character and class, with notes of charcoal, incense, blackberry, chocolate, and blackcurrants, this 2012 is super-full-bodied, beautifully pure, structured, powerful and long. Unlike many 2012s, it needs a few more years of bottle age and should evolve gracefully for 30-40 years. (RP)
Abreu's 2012 Cappella is dark, sensual and totally inviting. Dark red cherry, plum, menthol, smoke, new leather and spice notes are some of the signatures. One of the most open, young wines I have tasted from Abreu, the 2012 Cappella will please readers who don't or can't wait for some of the more structured wines to come around. Sweet rose petal and spice notes from the Cabernet Franc reappear on the finish, adding to the wine's, inviting personality. The blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. (AG)
