In the glass, the wine is unrestrained in its aromatic expression. Notes of dried flowers, fresh cut strawberries, kirsch and baking spices fill the room as the wine is being poured. On the palate, intense flavors of dark chocolate, cherry liqueur, sandalwood and smoke take hold. The texture is that of crushed velvet, soft and plush, but with a density and concentration that speak of great ageability. This young wine is impressive just at opening; however, with a gentle decanting-and in the glass-it continues to open to reveal multiple layers of interest and complexity. Given the strength it is showing in its youth, the wine should age well for 15 to 20 years in bottle.

The Cabernet Sauvignons started with the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. This is a beautiful wine, as most of the top 2012s tend to be, with a dramatic and accessible, fragrant nose of blackberry and cassis, some licorice, new oak and spice. The color is dense purple, and the wine has a full-bodied, beautiful texture and a long, long finish.

Marciano's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has developed nicely over the last year. Silky, round tannins give the wine much of its immediacy and sheer appeal. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and new leather wrap around the sumptuous, inviting finish. Sensual and open-knit, the 2012 bodes well for the future here.

A seductive style, introduced by jazzy, creamy, mocha-laced oak, this is elegantly styled, with well-integrated plum, cherry and blackberry flavors, ending with mocha and black licorice notes that give this a graceful, harmonious finish. Drink now through 2026. 250 cases made.
