Maquis Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine EnthusiastDense aromas of earth, berry fruits, latex and animal fur are a touch challenging at first but balance out with airing. This has a crisp, fresh feel despite coming from a hot year. Lightly herbal, leathery flavors of red currant and wild berry finish oaky, with more than adequate filling.
Wine SpectatorAn engaging, minerally style, with accents of white pepper to the red plum, currant and raspberry flavors. Fresh ground coffee notes show midpalate, followed by a tannic finish. Drink now through 2017. 6,600 cases made.
