A serious up-and-comer, Somerston is nailing the full-bodied California Cabernet style. This 2012 Cabernet leaves nothing behind and has been called “another winner...a powerhouse” by Robert Parker, and a “terrific example of the year” by Galloni. 2012 was the first in a string of blockbuster vintages for California, a run that’s certainly given ambitious winemakers like Craig Becker here the chance to show their best work. As put by Parker, Becker’s Somerston Estate is an “under-the-radar, high-quality producer” that is turning heads, earning higher and higher scores with every vintage, and we have their 2012 vintage for the best price out there!
Sourced from estate vineyards in the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley, up in the Vaca Mountains, between Howell Mountain and Atlas Peak, the classy, but powerful qualities of real mountain Cabernet fruit is evident in spades here with plenty of balancing acidity so you know it well this can age.
Already in high demand (surprising for such young label), the Somerston Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is bound to mature evenly and offer two decades of enjoyment. For easily the best price around, this "sumptuous and powerful" is sure to delight the most discerning Napa Cabernet enthusiasts. We have just a few cases on hand and they won't last long. Cheers!
