Single-Vineyard Cabernet Futures
Wine Highlight: 2012 Element 28 Cabernet
Those of you familiar with the periodic table will recognize the reference—Element 28 refers, yes, to nickel. We thought it fitting.
2012 is the inaugural vintage for this Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is located near Lake Hennessey and bears the hallmarks of a great Napa hillside cab. Exquisite, ripe, boysenberry fruit is complemented by floral expressions that add dimension. A solid core of tannin enhances the wine’s impressive character.
This wine was a pleasure to share at our Futures Barrel Tasting this spring, and we look forward to enjoying this wine again upon release.
