Indulge Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
This wine was Bill's indulgence in making yet another incredible Cabernet from our Dry Creek Valley estate fruit.

The eye is greeted with a rich dark garnet color. The nose is rich plum with a hint of spice and tobacco. Then an exciting, well rounded mouthful of peppered plum with hints of caramel, tobacco, black licorice and toffee accompanied by robust tannin from start to finish. Will drink well now or may be laid down for several years.
Only 475 cases produced. No allergens were used in the making of this wine.
A classic vintage from start to finish. Textbook conditions in 2012 saw near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until our wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar. The abundance of perfectly ripe grapes with a smooth balance of acids and sugars provided the opportunity to cull only the most select fruit, intentionally farming to lower yields bringing only the very best grape to harvest that results in wines acclaimed for their high quality in the bottle.
French Oak for 22 months, approximately 40% new, 40% one use and the balance neutral.
