2012 Kelleher

2012 Kelleher "Brix Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2012 Napa Valley growing season was a dream. Perfect weather from start to finish-and the 2012 vintage of our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon reflects this amazing season.  Our 92 point wine has a good 12-15 years of age to look forward to but know that is it drinking beautifuly right now. This is a wine that gives you a true sense of what Oakville AVA wines can give you with respect to terroir. Earthy, full bodied, fruit driven and memorable.

"This is quite extracted with a cold, phenolic character and hints of walnuts and blackberries. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh
finish. Should develop nicely with bottle age. Try in 2018."

"Soft and silky, this wine shows rich chocolate flavor and is light in oak and fleshy on the palate. Full-bodied and ripe, it finishes in a grip of dust." 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

We also have large formats, Magnum (1.5 L) and the very limited Jeroboam (3 L), also know as a Double Magnum.

Our 2012 Kelleher “Brix Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep dark ruby color with gorgeous aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry. Aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak and 50% once-used French oak barrels, our Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, fruit forward and ompressive. Look for a hint of toasted vanilla and a dash of spice on the palate. The well structured yet smooth tannins are present throughout the lingering finish and you can count on enjoying this wine for many years to come. 92 Points

Wine Profile

Ratings 92 Points-Robert Parker "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals ripe blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with graphite, licorice, forest floor and new saddle leather, with toasty vanilla lurking in the background. It is full-bodied, fleshy and dramatic as it is a faithful reflection of this ostentatious and impressive vintage. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years. "
Food Pairing Notes Our Cabernet Sauvignon will pair beautifully with lamb, rib-eye, filet, blue cheese.
