Tasting Notes The 2012 Mirror is a classic style Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas of this Cabernet Sauvignon are a complex and enticing blend of fresh ripe blackberry, black cherry, rose petal and and spice with dark chocolate and cedar nuances.

Its balanced acidity delivers a seamless harmony of fruit and velvety tannins that integrate a clean and long lasting finish.
Vineyard Notes Oakville and St. Helena
Winemaker Notes The grapes were destemmed and hand sorted. Then whole berry processed to manage tannin extraction. 14 days of fermentation with multiple gentle punch downs extract color and flavor compounds from the skins. Barrel aged 20 months in French Oak, half new oak and half neutral oak. Sur lies for two months during initial aging.
