The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beauty, showing all the generosity of the 2012 vintage. Composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 3% Merlot, its dense purple color is followed by copious aromas of crème de cassis and spring flowers, supple tannins, and an opulent, fleshy style. A total intellectual and hedonistic turn-on, it is loaded with fruit and complexity, and reveals beautiful harmony among all the component parts. It is a terrific introduction to what Cliff Lede has achieved at such a high quality level. (RP)
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous, ripe, flashy Napa Valley Cabernet loaded with exuberant fruit and plenty of near-term appeal. Dark red and black fruit, cloves, menthol, tobacco, licorice and new leather all flesh out in this supple, radiant Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next handful of years. This is a great introduction to the Lede house style. (AG)
Strikes a balance between elegance and finesse, with a mixed core of dark berry, savory herb, cedar, crushed rock and tobacco flavors. Firmly tannic on the finish, ending with a burst of black licorice. (JL)
Generous tannins surround a core of ripe, brawny blackberry fruit and a powerful imprint of dried herb in this wine, which is rich and concentrated. Earthy tobacco and chocolate seal the finish. (VB)
