" There are nearly 60,000 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

" The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has great texture and structure with a medium mouthfeel. There are aromas of dark plum, cherry, cassis, warm barrel spice, vanilla and dark chocolate. In the glass there are concentrated flavors of cherry, cassis, blackberry, plum, spice, tobacco and chocolate. "

Fruity and delicious

"Great wine for the money. When I tried this bottle a couple of weeks ago I was very pleased. I had lost track of its origin and suspected that it may have been a $30-40 bottle. I was thrilled to discover its price and immediately ordered a case to replace it! The 2012 is getting difficult to find. Grab it while you can!"
