2012 2012 Feather
- Winemaker Randy Dunn
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Up there with the 2012 Pedestal release in terms of quality, the 2012 Feather Cabernet Sauvignon is made by Randy Dunn of Dunn Vineyards in Napa Valley. It's always a100% Cabernet, and in 2012 offers sensational notes of sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, tobacco leaf, grahite and lead pencil shavings. Deep concentration, rich and tannic, it needs 4-5 years of cellaring, but will evolve nicely through 2032.
Pure, varietally accurate aromas and flavors of cassis, bitter chocolate, violet and dried herbs. Wonderfully smooth, pliant and suave but with terrific penetration too; really fills the mouth with perfume. Spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate, with the huge, building tannins in perfect harmony with the wine's fruit. Splendid tannin management here.
