Vineyard 29 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Story

"Our 2013 Aida Estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a enticing, expressive nose of chocolate covered cherries then continues to evolve revealing tantalizing scents of rich cocoa powder, scorched earth and iron-laden red soils heated by the sun after a summer rain. e well-structured backbone of fine-grained tannins lifts a bold acidity that indicates lengthy cellaring potential. e finish of this lush yet powerful wine lingers and lingers long after the last delicious sip."

Accolades

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate (850 cases), is sensational and about as profound as Napa Cabernet can be. A wine of great intensity, inky purple color, notes of penny, graphite, blackberry and cassis, with a background of wet rock-minerality. The wine is dense, full-bodied, powerful and capable of lasting another 20-25 years." eRobertParker.com, 97 points
