2012 Sojourn Cabernet Sauvignon Proprietary Cuvée - USA, California, Napa Valley (8/30/2015)
Dark with neon purple edges. Nose of cool red and black berry fruit all brightly played. Palate shows a deeply layered and showy style that I tend to enjoy; love the framboise laden cornucopia of black raspberries, black currants and a small dose of black cherries.
Mineral driven and packed for the long haul, this is right now showing but a glimpse of the future, and oh, what a future this will be. Plush and full structured, but manages to stay lithe. Super-balanced with notes of cardamom, glycerin and cocoa powder with tremendous verve. Acidity spot-on too. Finish goes very long and true with the fruits always in control. I have always been a fan of this Sojourn Cab.This today reminds me of Maybach Materium. Nich job on this one, gentlemen! (94 pts.)
