A gorgeous, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! Athair’s 2012 ‘Georges III Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon comes from one of the most prized vineyards in Napa Valley that produces fruit with the famous ‘Rutherford Dust’ aromatic profile. Deep violet in color, this wine opens with attractive notes of dark cherries, blueberries, and blackberries with hints of cobbler, dark chocolate, sandalwood spice, and smoked nuts. The palate is rich, full-bodied and complex with lingering flavors of dark fruit, chocolate covered cherries, earth, and a hint of vanilla, light oak, and peppery spice on the finish. The soft tannins make this wine delicious now, but it will continue to evolve in the cellar for many years to come.
