Tasting notes

This wine has been the “Proud Mary” of DiStefano Winery since 1992. It has always been our goal to produce wines that are true to varietal character and the 2012 Cabernet is no exception.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has a very briary almost dusty nose marked with blackberries, black cherries, raspberries, cassis, and anise seed. Ripe berries mingle with tobacco leaf, cedar, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of violets. Integrated oak and firm, ripe tannins grip the palate and give way to a long chewy finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon is predominately from the Kiona Vineyards on Red Mountain. The vintage was cool and long allowing maximum flavors to develop while keeping sugar levels low.
