Tasting Notes: This delivers a gorgeous mix of rich, vibrant blackberry, wild berry, currant and cassis flavors, taut and firm, with chewy tannins and dusty, cedary earth details on the finish. Ends with a burst of black licorice and graphite. Drink now through 2030. 1,500 cases made. — JL
Galaxy Notes: The 2012 vintage marks one of the smallest productions of Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and was the first vintage to be completed in the cellar under the Pinault family stewardship, this wine reflects an uncompromising selection aimed at giving the purest expression possible of this unique terroir. Shaped by ideal growing conditions, the distinctive personality of the Eisele Vineyard shows its class by way of precision, restraint and elegance. As a result, the 2012 vintage offers exceptional amplitude and depth. The opulent, layered palate is structured by extremely refined tannins and prolonged by characteristic minerality, the hallmarks of Cabernet from the Eisele Vineyard.
