2012 Hyde Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Price: 85.00 Club Price: 68.00

Tasting Notes

At Artesa, we have long prized the cabernet fruit from this special block on Hyde Vineyard for its classic cool climate character: white pepper aromas and on the mouth this wine presents restrained white currant and blackberry flavors framed with firm structure and acidity. The long, lush finish truly frames this concentrated and elegant cabernet sauvignon. The fruit gives vibrancy and balanced elegance and in an ideal vintage like 2012, the wine can be spectacularly complex, layered and delicate. This is only the third time when the weather in Carneros was absolutely perfect for crafting a Hyde cabernet worthy of a Single Vineyard designation (the others were in 2007 & 2009). Unfortunately, the third time is also the last, as 2012 was the final vintage for this historic little block. Fortunately for us, the 2012 bottling will age gracefully for many years to come to help us remember its rare beauty.
