2012 Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2012 was an exceptional beginning for the inaugural vintage of Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend of 3 separate vineyards created a compelling wine which highlights what Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is all about. Dark ruby in the glass, scents of red and dark fruits, cassis, iron, spices and a slight minerality emanate from the glass. The mid palate is rich and pliant while still remaining elegant, allowing waves of fruit and finely framed dusty tannins to co-mingle in harmony. The finish is a mile long and carries the 75% new oak well, allowing the terroir to fully express itself. 2012 was a very rich vintage, so drink now or stash this one away for a year or two as it will age exceptionally. This wine will age nicely for 10-15 years.
