2012 Gandona Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML

 “Living up to the potential predicted last year, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, there are 500 cases of this terrific wine. With its inky purple color, a glorious nose of blackberry and blueberry liqueur, full-bodied mouthfeel, dense, pure notes interwoven with camphor, charcoal embers and spring flowers, this is stunning stuff and a great example of the Estate’s potential. Drink now-2025+.”

Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Gandona is a richly concentrated dark purple and fully opaque wine. Rich and lush black & red fruits such as Boysenberry, sweet cherry, cassis, & pomegranate dominate the aromatics and flavors. Strong minerality notes of hot volcanic rock and gravel are on display. Floral elements of hibiscus and violets and interlaced with anise, allspice, vanilla and cocoa. Full bodied, this wine has a long and complex finish that lingers for over 45 seconds.
