2012 Kuleto Estate Lone Acre Cabernet Sauvignon
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The 2012 Lone Acre showcases a side of Cabernet that is not typically found in the Napa Valley i.e. a stone fruit character as opposed to a bramble fruit character. Red plums and red apple skins come to mind at first. These aromas are balanced with a smoky woodiness that evokes a cold campfire pit. The mouth is quiet and beautiful with super-soft tannins which coat the mouth. Graceful acidity ensures a lengthy palate and some insurance for those who like to age their Cabs. Seamless complexity is what our Lone Acre is all about.
