Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

(14.8% alcohol; includes 15% cabernet franc, 8% petit verdot and 3% merlot): Bright, saturated ruby-red; much deeper than the 2011. Back raspberry, minerals, leather and a whiff of tar on the nose, all lifted by a suggestion of blood orange. Lush and sweet but wonderfully vibrant too, with superb ripeness and considerable power to the dark raspberry, licorice and leather flavors. Offers an uncanny combination of extract, verve and clarity of flavor. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and superb breadth, length and grip. Forman notes that cassis and violet elements will come out later. A great vintage for this wine and quite likely to merit an even higher score down the road.

Big, bold bouquet that grows to the palate with tobacco, leather, and a little smoke. Long, soft finish. This has a ways to go on aging.

Leaner than the previous three vintages. Still has good red currant and tar. Long finish.

About This Producer

Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance." Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
