2012 Kelleher "Brix Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum
The 2012 Napa Valley growing season was one marked by very cool temperatures which led to our latest harvest to date here at Kelleher Family Vineyard. We picked on October 21st, 2012 in the early morning hours, finishing just before the skies opened up and brought inches of rain. We have found that this vintage has provided us with a flavor profile that developed at a lower Brix which has enabled us to make a truly elegant wine with softer tannin structure.
No more than 3 per customer.
We also have the very limited Jeroboam (3 L), also know as a Double Magnum.

Our 2012 Kelleher “Brix Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon is the most approachable vintage we have offered in release. Aromas of crushed violets and crème de cassis mingle with roasted espresso and shaved dark chocolate. The palate adds sweet Bing cherry fruit with complex layers of cola, star anise, clove and porcini powder. The richly textured, creamy mouth feel leads to soft, ripe tannins on the long finish. Drink now or let age for many years to come.

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."
