2012 Cadaretta Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Cadaretta Cabernet Sauvignon

Elegant, well-structured, rich Columbia Valley Cabernet … Cadaretta’s flagship red.

Aromas of black cherry, black berry and cassis. Some toasty mocha oak notes. Very subtle, complexing notes of an earthy wet forest floor (a mixture of wet leaves and earth), and pine tar. The fruit profile focused on black fruit carries through onto the palate with an addition of vanilla on the finish. The mouthfeel is rich and full with ample tannins, but they are velvety-soft, nice and round.
