Mettler Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The ruby-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with inviting aromas of black cherry, cedar and spice, followed by a graceful mingling of cherry, cassis, dark berry, and smoky oak flavors. On the palate, the plush mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, taking the perfect alignment of fruit, oak, and tannins through to a flawless finish. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging.
