  • Product Description

    Winemaker Notes
    The 2012 Elivette opens with the inviting suggestion of fresh strawberry, rose petal, notes of brown spice, chocolate and subtle leather. A pleasing sweet entry introduces a layered wine nicely shaped and supported by fine-grained tannins. On the palate, the wine is broad and round, delivering a profusion of fruit in a structural framework that is still tightly knit at this stage of development, but fully capturing the generous and exceptional nature of the 2012 vintage. Decant for 1-2 hours before service. Enjoy 2015 to 2028.

    Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim
    96: James Suckling
    Gorgeous fruit here yet reserved and subtle. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and intense finish. The tannin quality and length is so pretty. Drink or hold.

    94: Wine Enthusiast
    Beginning with a velvety texture and inviting bouquet of strawberry and rose, this classic blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot is grown on the winery's 845-acre estate atop Spring Mountain. Kirsch, black pepper and chocolate combine atop a smooth, integrated palate that's elegant from start to finish, the oak tempered to good effect. Drink now through 2027.

    The 2012 Spring Mountain Vineyard Elivette recalls two of my favorite Bordeaux appellations—St. Julien and Margaux. The former with its firmness and the latter with is delicate floral notes. This wine's elegance is just beginning to reveal itself. Time will bring it into greater focus and complexities. (Tasted: January 12, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
