2012 On Q Wines Appassionata Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville

Tasting Notes:

The 2012 Appassionata Cabernet is dense, dark, inky, and opaque in the glass. Dark fresh fruit, such as huckleberry, blackberry, and plum lead the charge out of the glass. As it slowly uncoils, the Coombsville terroir takes over and shows subtle notes of cocoa nib, star anise, fennel bulb, and violets - finishing with lingering hints of baking spices such as coriander, cinnamon and vanilla inter-mixed which chocolate and espresso stemming from the well-integrated French oak barrels where it underwent extended elevage. At once extremely approachable with polished tannins, as well as seductively promising complexities yet to come, the structure is also intertwined with tart acidity induced by long hang-time in the cool hills of Coombsville.
