Vineyard 29 Cru Cabernet Sauvignon

In stock at our Ballwin location
Winemaker - Philippe Melka (2002—present) produced and bottled at Vineyard 29
2012 Vineyard 29 Cru Cabernet Sauvignon....$57.99
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru, which is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest the other four Bordeaux varietals, comes from many different vineyards and the good news is there were nearly 6,000 cases of this wine that was aged 18 months in a combination of 50% new and 50% once-used French oak. The vineyard sources essentially span the entire length of the Napa Valley, from Coombsville in the south to north of St. Helena. This sexy, soft, velvety textured wine shows classic Cabernet notes of tobacco leaf, red and blackcurrants, licorice and cedar wood. Drink it over the next decade.
Rated 91/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Housed within this deep garnet hued wine, lifted aromas of sweet bing and black cherries, plums and creamy melted chocolate immediately emerge from the glass. On the palate, these aromas meld to present a gorgeous mouth feel of ripe plums, decadent chocolate covered cherries, tar and graphite. A warm and moderate growing season allowed for the perfect balance between ripe supple tannins and a vibrant acid structure with a clean minerality even further enhancing that balance. Expect a long, silky finish and excellent aging potential.
