Maldonado Family Vineyards 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Young as it may be, this wine is tasting beautifully now and definitely a wine to watch, and taste, as it evolves with age.
In the glass, this wine appears rich and dense with a purple hue. The nose is delightful with black and blue fruits, mocha, eucalyptus and bakeshop spice. The palate is intense and bold with a full mouthfeel. Savor black cherry, black currants, clove, anise and dark chocolate. Good to the last drop, with hints of vanilla on the finish.

Drinking well now, but could hold another 10+ years.
