The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve exhibits classic crème de cassis, graphite and spice box notes as well as terrific purity, plenty of depth and ripeness, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. In the past, this cuvée has been highly successful as well as very ageworthy. The 2012 is another beauty. Juicy and filled with cassis fruit, it is still primary, but promises to keep for two decades or more. (RP)
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is powerful, intense and sinewy in its feel, with pretty savory, tobacco and spice notes that add aromatic nuance. Today, the Reserve is the least expressive of the 2012s, but that is probably a good thing for its ability to develop in bottle. I would give the 2012 Reserve another year or two, and then a good bit of air upon opening. (AG)
