Castlebank Vineyards 'Vivian's Vineyard' Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
 
 
Introduction
Castlebank is uniformly highly regarded by our customers and a perennial favorite. The last 4 vintages of the Cabernet sold out very quickly. And now comes the release of the most highly regarded vintage yet. This wine is made by one of the most highly respected families in the Dry Creek Valley, who have been making delicious wines for over half a century. This wine has the ultimate Quality Price Ratio. By all standards of taste and quality this wine hits on all cylinders and a wine like this should sell for three times the price. This wine comes from the tiny Vivian’s Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley and we are quite pleased that we were able to get this very limited release Cab and deliver beyond incredible value. It is a complex and gorgeous Cabernet with incredible savings and hot pricing. Enjoy!

VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon
VINTAGE: 2012
GRAPE: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
COUNTRY: United States
REGION: Dry Creek Valley
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.20%
POINTS: 92+
I just returned this April from the Valley to meet with the Pedroncelli family and sampled this beauty shortly after it was bottled. The Vivian’s Vineyard consistently produces delicious wine and this is the best of the last five releases. A dark red hue with purple highlights. A handsome nose of nicely pronounced dark red fruit like black raspberries with sweet red currants, roses and vanilla. Full of generous fresh fruit including dark raspberries, black cherries, chocolate toffee, blueberries, and kirsch with hints of nutmeg and toasty oak. There are multiple layers of complexity and a very pleasing finish. Quite an elegant wine with zesty flavors that will provide enjoyment for many years to come. Pair with Roast Lamb with garlic and thyme, Beef stroganoff, Beef pot roast with red wine, steak pizzaiola, or Chicken Jalfrezi.
