Description

Rating: 94 Price  Drink Date 2019 – 2032 Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck Issue Date 28th Oct 2016 Source 227, The Wine Advocate The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot) is beautiful. Giving up lots of black and blue fruits, tobacco leaf, sweet oak and graphite, this fabulous Santa Cruz Mountain Cabernet is medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and focused, with fine tannin and impeccable balance. It shows its class on the lengthy finish as well. It’s a baby and needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and will have more than two decades of overall longevity. Looking at the 2013s from Jeffrey Patterson, these are serious wines that need to be on your short list for purchasing, and both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are in the top handful of wines in the appellation. As to the 2012s, unfortunately, two bottles of the Chardonnay Reserve were subtly corked, but I loved its fruit and depth on the palate; I do my best to source a bottle of this as soon as possible.
