This wine is a beautiful expression of the Yountville AVA. The 2012 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of cassis and toast. Juicy blackberry and cassis fruits pair nicely with flavors of chocolate, mineral and oak. This wine offers a rich texture from start to finish, with tannins that carry the fruit into an incredibly supple finish. The wine is delicious now, but has the foundation to last decades.
