2012 Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Sourced from Seavey's rock-strewn hillside estate vineyard off Conn Valley Road in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains, this is a wine of great energy and precision balance, with at least another decade of evelution still ahead of it. Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot aged in 60% new French oak barrels, it displays a muscularity often associated with "mountain grown: Cabernets. Wine Advocate loved its "sweet plum, blackcurrant, blackberry, burning ember, and loamy soil notes," adding that it was oised to age for 25+ years.
