Kongsgaard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU 13587


The Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the fantastic concentration that comes from a very low-yielding mountain vineyard. While the wine's balance reminds us of the Medoc, it has the sun-drenched Napa signature. Muscular and delicate, exotic yet pure, this wine is distinguished by both its density and levity. Parker found it to have "the intensity, purity and precision of this great vintage," and he agrees with us that it will go for the very long haul, if you have the patience and disciple to stash this beauty deep in your cellar. Galloni also loves it, calling it, "one of the most compelling, riveting wines of the year."

Wine AdvocateAged in Darnajou barrels, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is filled with lavish, extroverted scents of sweet vanillin, lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blackcurrants, licorice and camphor. This gorgeous effort is very much in keeping with this showy, ostentatious vintage. Drink now through 2030.

Wine SpectatorA gorgeous young Cabernet that is rich, plush, layered and persistent, with a mix of blackberry, currant, licorice, red candy and light cedary oak. The expressive finish sails on, revealing greater depth and persistence, complemented by firm, gripping tannins. Drink now through 2030. 180 cases made.
