VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
The 2012 Vellum Cabernet Sauvignon beams confidence and presence in every regard. It is classic in stature and form and bounds from the glass to immediately grab attention. The nose is ladened with heady notes of black raspberry, pure cassis, dark cherry, vanilla bean and winter and exotic spices. All are sinuously entwined. The palate delivers intense succulent dark fruit matched to the nose, but completing with a foundation of late summer understory and a lingering sweet tarry succulence. This ample wine stretches its frame with purpose in length and breadth, carrying adroit focused tannin uninterrupted to a long satisfying and persistent finish. It is a high, classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and age worthy 25+ years. A crown of an unforgettable vintage!
