Steven Kent 2012 The Premier
Regular price $99.99
Displaying the characteristic balance between flavor, aroma, and structure that is a hallmark of the Steven Kent Winery, this wine is replete with black fruit aromas, focused flavors of cassis, blackberry, and graphite, and oak. From a relatively warm year, this Cabernet displays appropriate and welcoming roundness that was replaced by austerity in the cool previous vintage. Tight in its youth, it will blossom organoleptically and structurally over the next several years, and with proper storage should evolve beautifully for 10-15 years. This wine showcases a vision for Cabernet Sauvignon that is in keeping with the world-class potential of the Ghielmetti Estate Vineyard and the Livermore Valley and is more concerned with the wine’s harmony and beauty than it is in pure brute power.
