2012 Jones Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet

<p>“By now most people have heard that the 2012 vintage was a classic Napa Valley growing season hallmarked by even, warm temperatures and no major rain events. The 2012 Jones Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon possesses all the power, depth and vitality that the finest sections of the estate can impart. Aromas of anise, chicory, blackberry and fresh loam jump from the glass. On the palate there is a seamless trajectory front to back highlighted by cocoa, dried plum, graphite and a velvety tannin frame. The true mark of the vintage is the freshness found throughout the wine at every turn. It is proof that when nature is most balanced it can show power and grace, depth and brightness, simultaneously.” <br>
- Thomas Rivers Brown, Winemaker; Jones Family Vineyards<p>
<p>"This is a sumptuous new release from Jones Family that reminds me why we adore the stunning 2012 vintage in Napa. Launching forth with crushed blueberries and black raspberries, and subtle savory notes, this hedonistic experience floats gracefully across the palate with dark plums and alluring notes of maple and mocha. Showing fabulous complexity, this dense Cabernet is firing on all cylinders. Legendary, 98 Points<br>

<p>“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense ruby/purple color, slightly more structure and density than The Sisters, and has plenty of cassis, blueberry, floral notes, full-bodied opulence, excellent purity, texture and length. It should drink well for 10-15 years. 94 points.<br>
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #215, October 2014<p>
<p>“The 2012 Jones Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more mineral-driven than the Sisters. Cloves, rose petals, crushed rocks and leather meld into the super-expressive finish. 93 points.<br>
