THE RULE 2012 CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY 750mL

There are expectations of Napa Valley Cabernet. A specific set of “rules” must be followed. The grapes must be picked at a certain sugar range, fermented at the exact temperature for a certain amount of time, and rest several months in the perfect combination of oak barrels. These guys follow all of the rules, except they break the one rule most wineries won’t.....the price!

The grapes for the 2012 Rule were sourced from various locations throughout the Napa Valley, crushed and then fermented separately so winemaker Tom Leonardini could blend the best lots together in the future. By the way, Tom learned the ropes at his family's winery; Whitehall Lane. The Rule was aged in barrel on French oak and finished on American oak.

Aromas of black cherries and red raspberries, as well as vanilla and toasty oak. On the palate, the Rule has a silky, round mouth feel, but has more balance than you would expect at this price. The finish is long with mild tannins. The Rule is meant to be enjoyed Immediately, but will age gracefully for about eight years.
