"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch is from the Rutherford sector over near the Silverado Trail. The color is
opaque purple—slightly darker than the Hayne or the John C. Sullenger. Very concentrated, with almost a confit of
black cherries, blackberries and dusty earthiness underlying the fruit, this prole is not surprising as this vineyard is
grown in gravelly, loamy soils. With a full-bodied mouthfeel, super density and richness, I found it a very youthful,
vibrant, backward and foreboding style. This should be very long-lived, but require 4–5 years of patience. I won’t be
surprised to see it keep for two decades."
