Harvest & Tasting Notes:
Only the Coombsville appellation could produce a wine with such diversity of aromas and flavors, and with such intensity as is displayed in the 2012 Handwritten Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon. Find macerated black cherries, cocoa powder, sarsaparilla and tobacco laced with rocky minerality on the nose. A first taste reveals bright red fruit delivered by lively acidity, a second offers roasted earth, pipe tobacco and structured tannins, all delivered by a full, rich body. Enjoy now followed by a firm decant or cellar for three to five years.
