Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 95 Points #219 Jun 2015 Jeb Dunnuck 95 Drink: 2015 - 2032 $49-$66 (60) The top Bordeaux blend of the estate, the 2012 Sestina (72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 70% new French oak) is a serious, age-worthy effort that will need a decade to hit full maturity. Exhibiting notes of black fruits, smoke tobacco, scorched earth and graphite, itís full-bodied, structured and concentrated, with a great finish. It opens up nicely in the glass, and will still be kicking on its 20th birthday. Winemaker Chris Peterson calls 2012 an "Iconic vintage," adding that there were no heat spikes and that it's as good as, if not better than, 2007. I'm in complete agreement with him and loved these latest releases. Chris's wines always have firm, savory characters, yet back it up with serious mid-palate depth and concentration. These are all wines I can't wait to taste when they're at full maturity.
