Tasting Notes

The 2012 Dead Horse perfectly exemplifies this outstanding vintage with its purity and power. This Cabernet boasts vibrant aromas of black cherry and blueberries mingling with purple spring flowers and toasty vanilla. The palate displays remarkable polish and purity of fruit, with a dense core of black fruits supported by notes of hot stones and sweet vanilla. The wine’s tannin and fresh acidity make this wine a prime candidate for aging, but its freshness and youthful vibrancy are virtues that should be explored.
