2012 CABERNET, Magnum Napa Valley

2012 CABERNET, Magnum Napa Valley

A bold and balanced Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum, exhibiting aromas of cassis, earth, and mushroom accented with spice notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and tinder box.

♦ 90 Points, Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine - "Bold and lush in cranberry and dark chocolate, it’s also robust in black pepper and cedar."

♦ 90 Points, James Suckling - "A fresh and bright cabernet with mushroom, black currant and orange peel character. Full body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Drink or hold."

Winemaker Notes
A blend of fruit from some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon growing regions in Napa Valley, including our own Diamond Mountain District estate vineyard which surrounds the Castello. A touch of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec balance the rich dark fruit and tannins of the Cabernet, adding a vibrancy to its lush mouthfeel and lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This bold yet well-balanced wine makes a perfect accompaniment to grilled meat dishes
Other Notes
Shows excellent aging potential for the next fifteen years.
