Coliseum Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Coliseum Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$125.00

On the back side of the Hossfeld Vineyard lies a steeply terraced block of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon that sits across a gorge from some 19th century resort ruins. Like this former landmark, the 2012 rendition of Coliseum Cabernet is a pure mix of power and grace delivered seamlessly to the glass. The 2012 vintage proved ideal for this naturally low yielding vineyard planted on fractured bedrock. Vibrant and concentrated, this robust Cabernet exudes confidence and character right out the gate. Dark and intense to the rim, concentrated aromas and flavors engage the senses with a spectrum of blue and red fruits, anise, acacia flowers, creosote and Belgium chocolate. The mid-palate and finish are classic examples of Hossfeld Vineyard grapes. Plush fruit is intertwined with a perfectly framed structure which sails off into a never ending finish.

All 2012 wines will ship in Fall 2014.
