    Earthy, underbrush-scented oak notes mute the flavors of this red, which is more good than exceptional, as the dark berry element is dried and savory. Drink now. 2,574 cases made.

    Offering plenty of red fruits, toasted spice and underbrush aromas and flavors, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium-bodied, supple, nicely polished and balanced, with chewy tannin and tons of charm. It shows classic Santa Cruz Mountain character and will drink nicely for 7-8 years. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, all of which spent 22 months in equal parts French and American oak.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
