2012 Herrera Rolando Jr., Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine's darker than-night appearance hints at the power within. Intriguing notes of plum, cassis, figs, roasted coffee beans and toasted almonds lead into deep layers of dark fruit, ripe cherry, cocoa, clove and vanilla.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine's darker than-night appearance hints at the power within. Intriguing notes of plum, cassis, figs, roasted coffee beans and toasted almonds lead into deep layers of dark fruit, ripe cherry, cocoa, clove and vanilla. This intense, complex well-balanced, elegant wine is very approachable now but will continue to develop beautifully with age.
Vineyard Notes
Frog Tree Vineyard, a small, three-acre plot is located in Coombville. The Coombsville appellation is a cresent-shaped section of the foothills of the Vaca Range, where alluvial soils cover volcanic ash from Mt. George with cobblestone-strewn layers of rich, gravelly loams. This very temperature micro-climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. Coombsville wines can often be recognized by their soft but significant tannins, which provides excellent structure.
Production Notes
From bud-break to harvest, near-perfect conditions resulted in fruit of optimal ripeness, balance, and quality. The 2012 vintage is being heralded as one of Napa Valley's best.
Food Pairing Notes
Prime Rib, braised short ribs, wood-oven pizza, grilled portobello mushrooms.
