The full-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément, which comes from the Oakville Bench, was aged in new oak puncheons. There are 250 cases of this Pauillac-like offering. It possesses notes of Christmas fruitcake, spice box, vanillin and black fruits in its opulent, open-knit personality. Drink 2018-2035.

During my tasting with Luc, I was also able to taste a few older vintages. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement is showing beautifully and has the open, sexy, seamless style of the vintage front and center. Blueberries, graphite, loads of spice, and some forest floor notes give way to a full-bodied, elegant and seamless 2012 that’s on the early edge of its drink window.
