Winemaker Brian Nuss must be commended for this effort. Rigorous vineyard management and traditional viticulture and eonological techniques are utilized in building the wines of Twenty Rows. The wine is sourced from Mt. Veeder and Yountville.The wine opens up with dark cherries and black currants. Then shows hints of chocolate, tobacco and graphite. Dense texture and a fine sense of balance enhance the pleasing aromatics of blackberry and vanilla bean. A wonderful red wine that has everything you are looking for in a Cabernet. For an inexpensive Cabernet Sauvignon, this is one of the best I've had this year and is easily one of the best values.

"Winemakers in Napa Valley were not only elated by the quality and quantity of the 2012 harvest, but a few saw a level of excellence that superseded past vintages, going back decades. " - James Laube/Wine Spectator (November 14, 2012).

"This is a vintage for followers of classic, big, fruit-dominated Napa wines. The resulting wines are exactly what we have come to expect from top years in Napa Valley - exuberant and boisterous, filled with oodles of ripe fruit, exceptional purity and fleshy, succulent, mouth filling, crowd-pleasing personalities of considerable character and richness. The low acidity, sweet tannins and high, but not excessive, alcohols have resulted in a great vintage that appears to be a no-brainer when it comes to consumers' interest." - Robert Parker/Napa Valley's 2012 Vintage (October 31, 2013).

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Beautiful color with penetrating aromas that begin with black currant, blueberry and cacao all neatly layered for complexity. The palate reveals flavors of juicy blackberry, cherry and espresso. Firm, solid tannins provide good structure, weight and a great mid-palate grip. Long finish rounds out this wine.
