"The 2012s are filled with oodles of ripe fruit, exceptional purity and fleshy, succulent, mouth-filling, crowd-pleasing personalities."
— Robert Parker

The 2012 vintage was a glorious year for Napa Valley and the Stags Leap District. Bud break was followed by ideal, steady spring weather during flowering, which allowed for even fruit set. The long summer was moderate, with warm days, cool nights, and minimal heat spikes - perfect for slow, steady and optimal grape maturation.

The wines show exceptional balance with concentrated ripe fruit, complemented by bright acidity and supple, yet intense, structure. The abundance of perfectly ripe grapes allowed winemakers to cull only the most select fruit. The cabernets are indeed stunning and sumptuous as reflected in the vintage's critical acclaim.
