2012 Reserve 1.5L Magnum

Tasting Notes
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot.  

"Inky ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry, blackcurrant, incense and vanilla, with a smoky mineral nuance adding vivacity. Stains the palate with intense dark berry preserve and licorice flavors, with mocha and vanilla notes adding sweetness. Smoothly blends power and vivacity and finishes very long and sappy, with velvety tannins coming up to add shape and grip."  92 points Vinous

Winemaking
Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the largest planted acreage at Cass, thus we have the ability to choose fruit from a variety of sites, soils, and clones across the vineyard. Picked in early September, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction, which was necessary to match the ripe flavors of the vintage. Aged for 22 months in French oak.

Vineyard Notes
The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the HuerHuero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
