Janzen 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Janzen 2012 Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has made a serious splash this vintage, reflecting one of the most timeless and classic Oakville Cabs ever produced. Intensely concentrated with classic cassis, black cherry fruit, mocha, earth, and caramelized oak, this Cab is both incredibly complex and beautifully seamless. This is simply a fabulous effort from the Janzen family. 99 Point Rating - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate- October 2015"Virtually perfect, and a California version of Haut-Brion or La Mission Haut-Brion is the absolutely remarkable 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon. Loads of scorched earth, burning embers/charcoal, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass along with some floral notes. Quite full-bodied, it offers sweet tannin, low acidity, and a fleshy, rich finish of close to a minute. The tannins are there, but they are wonderfully sweet and integrated. This is a fabulous effort from the Janzen family." - Robert Parker [+]
