2012 Passing By

75% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Estate Merlot

94 pts.

 

"Winemaker David Galzignato is making bold but layered wines from the Willow Creek district, including this blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. It offers aromas of cherry-vanilla cream soda with wild mint in the background. Solid tannins frame the palate, which boasts rich flavors of blackberries, root beer, black dirt and port reduction sauce. Drink 2018–2024, perhaps beyond."

- Matt Kettmann, WINE ENTHUSIAST
