2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Andolsen Vineyard
Nestled in the Western ridge of picturesque Dry Creek Valley is this steep, terraced hillside vineyard. Sustainably farmed, the pristine vineyard produces clone 6 cab grapes of great intensity, superior ripeness and extremely complex varietal character: dark cherry, fresh cedar, bold blueberry and toasty oak weave a tapestry of aromas and flavors into a bold fruit finish and blend a mouthful of textures with compelling fruit tannins.
175 cases crafted. Unfiltered/Unfined. Vegan
The Andolsen cab get over 3 years of barrel age and 1 year in the bottle. I have recently enjoyed (and have had other club member write of their enjoyment of) the 2003 Vintage Andolsen. It is soft with ripened cherry and subtle tannins. In my cellar (average 58°) I anticipate it will ‘hold on’ another 3-5 years. I feel the 2012 Andolsen will have a similar life span!
