2012 Bevan Cellars Wildfoote Vineyard Vixen Block Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, USA
$349.00 USD $369.00 USD
A remarkably seductive effort, delightfully creamy and chocolaty, plush and layered, with a firm, rich, potent core of dense, earth-laced currant and blackberry flavors. Firm cedary oak is evident, gliding along gracefully on the finish.

This nearly 300-case cuvée is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 7 and aged in equal parts new Taransaud and Darnajou. Flirting with perfection for sure, this is an absolutely riveting wine. It offers a magnificent, room-filling fragrance of red and black currants, blackberries, camphor, incense, truffle and lead pencil shavings. Some toasty oak is followed by an almost never-ending style of wine, with enormous extract and body, gorgeous richness, purity, and equilibrium, and a killer finish of close to a minute. This is amazing stuff that should continue to drink well for another 25-30 years. Drink through 2045.
