VINE CLIFF-16 Rows Cabernet Sauvignon SV 1.5L
Only 2,200 bottles produced. Full blend is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot. Reflecting the "best of our best" standards for this wine, the 2012 delivers on every count. Intense, yet supple, age-worthy, yet approachable. A classic cabernet in every respect. Made with fruit from the first sixteen rows of vines planted in front of the Sweeney family’s hilltop home, this bottling represents the oldest and most mature fruit from our Oakville Estate. It is layered with ripe blackberry and boysenberry jam and deep, bittersweet chocolate. It has extraordinary texture and concentration that will stay with you long after you've finished the bottle. In the nose, concentrated dark fruits, with a touch of earth, the palate is approachable and elegant, with currant and blackberry flavors. Offering great presence, with supple tannins leading into a long, graceful finish. A wine for special occasions, great with special meats and good friends.
