Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Entre-Deux-Mees is a classic take on Cabernet Sauvignon, never cheating the consumer on density, complexity or ageabilty. The 2012, as one might expect, is brilliant. About 740 cases were produced from a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. True to form, the wine has an opaque ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of pen ink, graphite, blackcurrants, white chocolate and subtle background earth. Terrific fruit intensity, a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, impressive purity and overall personality jump from the glass of this brilliant wine that is just beginning to drink well, which is in keeping with the personality of most 2012s. This is a beauty and fairly priced for such a great Cabernet from Napa Valley in a great vintage. Drink Dates: 2015-2025.
