Terlato Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Rocky soils and a steep west/south-west facing slope offered a perfect environment to create Cabernet with an intensity of structure emblematic of the region. The mid palate has a rich texture, very well balanced. Notes of dark cherry and liquorice flavorson the mouth, with velvety tannins and a lingering finish.

In 2001, a favorite hilltop retreat rising just above the Terlato Family’s winery in the Rutherford Appellation was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon with the dream to continue the Terlato’s quest to craft great Cabernet from the most distinctive appellations of Napa Valley. The rocky soils and steep west/south-west facing slope offered a perfect environment to create Cabernet with an intensity of structure emblematic of the region.
