Fait Main Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This uber-rare Cabernet blend is intensely delicious with a cashmere-smooth texture is the leading contender for Boutique wine of the vintage, particularly noteworthy given the universal acclaim for Napa’s 2012 harvest! From one of the great sites in Napa, this 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard waltzes across the palate with boldness, exuberance and focus. Black cherry, red berries, hints of cocoa and a galaxy of sumptuous spices all come together on the palate for an exceedingly satisfying experience tonight but guaranteed to impress for at least 7-10 years to come! Dense, ripe and full-bodied, with velvety tannins, this monumental effort displays a core of cassis, blackberry, mocha and caramel complimented by hints of creamy toffee oak (thanks to new French Oak) on the prodigious finish. This glorious new release is reminiscent of past favorites from Ovid, Hundred Acre and Checkerboard. Worthy of 97 point rating tonight (decanting recommended) and thanks to a harmonious balance, well on the road to 98+ points in the next 5-10 years. HIGHLY
