2012 White Rock Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous wine. Dark and inviting, the 2012 offers notable depth and creaminess, both of which add to the wine's near-term appeal. Dark plum, earthiness, cedar, spice and new leather are all pushed forward. The tannins are already quite soft, so readers won't have to wait too long before enjoying this delicious, beautifully crafted Cabernet. Best of all, the 2012 offers notable value within the context of Napa Valley. (AG)
Located in a small valley in the foothills of the Stag's Leap Range, this family-run vineyard and winery was established in 1977 and consists of 22 acres of terraced hillsides and 14 acres of benchland. White Rock is known for their elegant and authentic, estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. White Rock has never used herbicides or pesticides, and their commitment to sustainable farming is very strong. From the producer: "The color of this Cabernet is a beautiful deep, dark purple with rose tones, which promises an equally pretty wine, and does not disappoint. A nose of ripe fruit and bright oak yields to a supple mouth feel, boasting bright raspberry and cranberry, finishing with the softness of fine grained, velvety tannins. This vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to drink now and will age gracefully for 15-20 years."
