2012 Transcendent Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2012 Transcendent Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of true depth and sophistication. It exhibits pronounced aromas of blackberry, caramel and violet. Flavors of ripe fruit, toffee, and mocha intermingle perfectly on the palate. The 2012 Transcendent is a full-bodied wine with a perfect oak to fruit balance, elegant tannins and a long rich finish.
Sourced from some of the highest regarded AVA’s in Napa Valley, Transcendent is an expression of the best Napa Valley can produce. The wide range of AVA sources allows us to create an exquisitely balanced wine with utmost elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon from Oak Knoll tends to be very soft and broad, with excellent blackberry fruit flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon from the higher altitude mountain AVA’s brings an incredible depth and elegance to the palate. Mt. Veeder Cabernet adds an ethereal violet note to the blend that lifts and elevates the rich and ripe aromas.
Red meat is a classic pairing for Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 vintage would pair well with braised short ribs or a prime rib roast.
