2012 Las Bonitas 'The Giant' Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville
This wine was produced from our best barrel of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Carpignano vineyard in the newly recognized Coombsville AVA, southeast Napa. This is the first time for Las Bonitas that we have created such a limited production, of a wine that we consider the 'Daredevil' Cabernet Sauvignon, on steroids! Given the painstaking nature of this process, production will generally be very limited.
Tasting Notes from Proprietor Garret Murphy: “...deep purple hue in color, blackberry jam and dark current packed with classic aromas of earthiness, coffee ground, peppercorn and dried sage. Coupled with the scent of vanilla crème brulée and beautifully integrated tannins gives this wine a velvety mouth-feel with a complex and lingering finish. Well-structured, the finish persists revealing lightly toasted oak, spice and natural acidity.”
