Aged in Taransaud (75%) and Darnajou (25%) oak, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Tin Box is more backward than the perfect 2011 was last year, but it reveals similar decadence, opulence and velvety texture. Its opaque blue/black/purple color is followed by a stunning perfume of white chocolate, spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and an unctuous, massive mouthfeel.
96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Just the right amount of ripe, juicy blackberry and licorice gives this wine vitality and enough suppleness midpalate on to push past the tannins, which turn cedary and gravelly.
