From sites in Calistoga and St. Helena aged 30 months in 100% new French oak (followed by two years in bottle), the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Stormy Weather is a ripe, forward, sexy 2012 that offers terrific blue fruits, violets and spring flower aromatics. With a beautiful floral character, full-bodied richness, notable freshness and purity, and the exuberance and charm of the 2012 vintage, drink it anytime over the coming 15-20 years.
The deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis, blackberries and black cherries with violets and earthy/savory notions in the background. The full-bodied mouth is soft and rich with velvety tannins and a lively lift to the long finish.
