Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine SpectatorOffers plenty of ripe, vivid, up-front blackberry, vanilla, mocha and cream notes, joined by cedary oak and dried herb details. Ends with firm, ripe tannins. Drink now through 2023. 15,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThe winery initially produced Cabernet, a fact fans of its white wines might not know. This vintage offers 83% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. Puckering in tannin, it offers faint mint and high-toned black cherry, the finish ripe and vanilla-sweet.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a bit more depth and ripeness than the Merlot and lacks complexity, but is straightforward and spicy, with good red and black currant fruit. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
