Dark ruby in color, the 2012 Bosché has sweet black cherry aroma with integrated oak spice and black fruits. The complexity in the nose expresses green olive, aromatic cedar, walnut meat, mushroom and dark chocolate. The flavor is big, voluptuous, soft and velvety, with rich great depth of black fruit. The tannins are well integrated providing a very long fruitful finish.

Wine AdvocateThe classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosché Vineyard is 90.1% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 9.9% Merlot, aged 26 months in oak. This is one of the iconic wines of Napa, and one of the great vineyard sources coming from Rutherford on foothill bench soils at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. This is one of the finest examples of this wine I've ever tasted, and there have been many. The wine shows plenty of loamy soil notes intermixed with blackberry, cassis, cedar wood and spice box. It's full-bodied, shows terrific intensity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel and moderate tannin in the finish. It still needs cellar time - and 5-6 years should bring forth plenty of magic, but this wine will also last 30-40 years.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant style, with dry, dusty, refined tannins meeting dried currant and wild berry notes, getting the good push that comes from extraction. Drink now through 2024. 1,215 cases made.
