2012 Stony Hill Cabernet Magnum

Let’s start with the brilliant garnet color of this, our fourth vintage of Cabernet, which beguiles you into sniffing, swirling and tasting. It’s a deeply aromatic wine with notes of dark chocolate, sweet blueberry fruit and a touch of green tobacco leaf that one would note in the old school Napa Cabs from the 1950s and 1960s. On the palate we find the tartness of fresh blueberries and youth-ful tannins that will give the wine structure and ageability. There is a new depth of flavor in this vintage which we could predict even before the harvest because of the larger berries, leaves and trunks of the eight year old vines. That, combined with the perfect weather throughout the growing season promised us a bright, fruity Cabernet showing new maturity and long aging potential.
