Creamy, perfumed, vanilla- and mocha-scented oak is evident from the start, with dark berry, loamy earth, graphite, crushed rock and dried herb notes present as well. Ends with a tapered finish that highlights the crushed rock loaminess.

The perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon McGah comes from a Rutherford parcel owned by the McGah family. Virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 75% Taransaud and 25% Gamba wood, it boasts off-the-charts richness as well as an inky/purple color and notes of graphite, spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice and forest floor. This incredibly fruity, full-bodied, voluptuously textured wine can be consumed now and over the next two decades or more.
