The full-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément, which comes from the Oakville Bench, was aged in new oak puncheons. There are 250 cases of this Pauillac-like offering. It possesses notes of Christmas fruitcake, spice box, vanillin and black fruits in its opulent, open-knit personality. Drink 2018-2035. Robert Parker 94
Crafted with the passionate, uncompromised and ongoing pursuit of quality, this judicious blend comes from the finest barrels of our manicured vineyards on the Oakville Bench and on the foothills of Knights Valley and St. Helena. As the French say, “Je t’aime, un peu, beaucoup, passionnément!” (I love you, a little, a lot, passionately!) This special wine is dedicated to my wife, Jodie Morlet. It is ‘Passionately’ or ‘Passionnément.’
Black cherry, dark spice, chocolate, leather, menthol and licorice are pushed forward in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionement. Dark, sumptuous and beautifully expressive in the modern style of Napa Valley Cabernet, the Passionement offers notable depth and raciness throughout. Passionement is a blend of fruit from Andy Beckstoffer's To Kalon and Missouri Hopper vineyards. -- Antonio Galloni 95 Vinous
