2012 Tela Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The name TELA is Latin and means Canvas or Painting. The painting featured on the front label was created by Napa Valley artist Annie Bouthillette Mercier. Each of our vintages illustrate a different painting from Annie. This wine is produced from 100% Napa Valley fruit sourced from select vineyards throughout the southern part of the valley and produced by the talented Rolando Herrera.
The bright nose draws you in with enticing aromas of ripe, fresh blackberries robed in sweet vanilla and dusted with sandalwood and light tobacco, as if flirting with you. The palate delivers what the nose promises; a mouthful of juicy bramble berry fruit and baking spices. The lasting, velvety finish surprises you with its refreshing mouth cleansing acidity, simply true to form. Drink alone or pair with rich game dishes (duck breast, venison, fruit compote). Enjoy within the next 1 to 5 years.
