Tasting Notes

WA96

The 2012 Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from the Dutch Henry Canyon area near both the Switchback and Hourglass Vineyards and sits at a 400-foot elevation, is certainly another stunner. It’s rare to see two Cabernet Sauvignons that eclipse anything from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, but I think Jenzen has done that in 2012. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon, the Cloudy’s Vineyard is opaque purple and displays richness and intensity in its notes of lead pencil shavings intermixed with cedar wood, fruitcake, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. A wine of extraordinary intensity and a long finish, it should drink well for 20-25 years.

WE93

Dark, rich mountain blueberry and blackberry form the core of this classically delicious Napa Valley wine from an estate vineyard. Velvety dark chocolate melts over integrated tannins and a medium-strength body, the finish lengthy, dusty and well-structured. Age through 2020–2022. Cellar Selection
