Dark ruby in color, the 2012 Bosché Cabernet Sauvignon 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 depth of black fruit. The tannins are well-integrated, providing a long fruitful finish.

Vineyard Notes

Bosche Vineyard–Rutherford (100%): A small 22 acre vineyard located west of Hwy. 29, on the famed Rutherford Bench, the Bosché vineyard has very deep gravelly soils. A seasonal creek crosses the vineyard which raises the water table in the spring, providing water and nutrients for new shoot growth. As veraison approaches the water table drops, stressing the wines and intensifying the dark velvety fruit flavors. This is a natural area to grow Bordeaux varietals with dry farming or minimal drip irrigation.


Production Notes

This growing season was ideal and some would venture to say…“perfect”. With textbook conditions for spring bud break, the vines continued steady growth over the spring, flowering and fruit set. Classic weather promoted a very even set of fruit that was abundant but not over cropped. The long summer days brought a normal veraison, initiating the long ripening period that achieved our goals before the fall rains. Harvest was a winemaker’s dream…
