Earthworks Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine EnthusiastThe fruit flavors are plum and blackberry, with warm, meaty notes and hints of mocha and dill. The varietal character shows most in the wine's feel on the palate, which is ample but just slightly austere and restrained. Drink now-2020.
Wine SpectatorFresh and vibrant, plush in texture, generous with cherry, cinnamon and fig flavors. This comes together smoothly and expressively on the finish. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely scented of creme de cassis, plum preserves and blueberry tart with nuances of violets and rose water. Medium to full-bodied, it gives a good amount of ripe black and blue fruit flavors in the mouth, supported by medium level, chewy tannins and a medium to long finish. Drink it now to 2017+.
