2012 Scherrer "Scherrer Vineyard" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


 Product Description

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  A real killer effort is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. Alexander Valley has been producing more and more top Cabernets and deserves certainly to be considered up there with some of the best AVAs in Napa. This opaque purple wine has a beautiful nose of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and earthy undertones. Stunningly full-proportioned the wine has terrific depth of fruit and richness. Scherrer was telling me the Cabernet was planted on the old St. George rootstock that was favored and not prone to the Phylloxera scourge that took out all of the AXR rootstocks primarily in the 1980s. This long, rich, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon also has licorice and unsmoked cigar tobacco nuances, giving it great complexity and palate presence. The price is a steal for what it is. Look for it to continue to drink well for 20-25 years. (RP)  (10/2016)

93 points Vinous

  The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Scherrer Vineyard emerges from parcels planted on St. George rootstock in 1989. Beams of tannin give the 2012 its sense of structure and overall shape. Dark red cherry, plum, herbs, leather, smoke and tobacco are all pushed together. Virile and explosive in bearing, the 2012 is going to need time to fully come together, even if it is already quite impressive. (AG)   (2/2016)
