2012 Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine: "In the glass, the 2012 Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, deep purple. The nose is vibrant with violets, huckleberry and a touch of vanilla spice. The palate is elegantly wound with dusty tannins and a supple, velvet texture. The long, seamless finish, ebbs and flows with flavors of black currant, dark cocoa and forest floor." -Winery Vineyard: "The vineyards are located along the southern extremity of Alexander Valley, along the Western bench of the Mayacamas. These soils are rocky and volcanic, with excellent early and mid---day sun exposure. The water stressed vines thrive only because the Mayacamas peaks protect them from the harsh \afternoon sun.
