2012 Rombauer "Stice Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1480473 92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Known for its luxurious style of Napa Valley cabernet, Rombauer takes a more detailed approach to this single-vineyard wine in 2012. At Stice Lane in St. Helena, the vines grow in the gravel of what was once a riverbed. And as ripe and supple as their fruit may be, this wine retains its shape and dimension, finely drawn with black-olive savor and rich tobacco scents. Lively and satisfying, this has a wild edge and the stamina to age for a few years, as well as the juiciness to enjoy now with a thick-cut T-bone. Inner quote mark (12/2015)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From a vineyard in St. Helena, a source for this producer since 2004, this shows a generosity of extracted fruit built around burly bursts of black pepper, leather, black currant and cedar. It manages to be bright and refreshing on the lengthy finish. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Stice Lane Vineyard shows blackberry and blackcurrant and a hint of chocolate and mocha. This is soft, round, plush and could even pass for a Pomerol if it were French. However, it’s all Cabernet Sauvignon and, sadly, only 250 cases were made. This is probably the best Rombauer wine I’ve tasted in many a year. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A ripe, open-knit style, with appealing blackberry and wild berry flavors, accented by touches of black licorice, mocha and dried herb. Ends clean and spicy. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
