2012 Medlock Ames "Bell Mountain Estate" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1195184 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *CELLAR SELECTION* Plum jam and cranberry rise aromatically from the glass, with pretty accents of violet and cedar. Notes of baked bread add a comforting notion, while soft, sticky tannins combine with toasted oak and caramel on the midpalate and finish. There's a boldness to the structure; drink through 2020. (VB) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Taut, with firm yet friendly tannins that impart gravelly grip amid the dark berry flavors and hints of mocha and espresso. Ends chewy. Drink now through 2024. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

K&L Notes

"This wine opens up with beautiful and powerful aromatics. The first sip follows through on the bold promises made by the aroma, by offering a lush mouthfeel and mouthwatering acidity. Filled with red fruits, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers ripe cherry, strawberry, and a touch of cranberry flavors. A tiny percentage of Malbec and Petit Verdot provide the accent notes to the solid Cabernet core, while the Merlot lends additional structure. There is a sweetness, like that from a black plum confit, that combines with toasty caramel and cedar box from barrel aging. The subtle oak component reflects the wine’s balance and bold structure with nicely managed tannins. The long finish has no harsh edges and reminds us why we love our Alexander Valley mountain-grown fruit. Enjoy now or for the next two-four years," notes winemakers Chris Jame and Ames Morison.
