Cabernet Sauvignon, "Baby Poux" 2012

Sineann

Baby Poux (pronounced "baby poo") Vineyard is named for owner Paul Champoux. It was the first block he planted after taking over the famous Mercer Ranch Vineyards. Sombody dubbed it "Baby Poux" and it stuck! We are always thrilled with this wine. It has a distinct supple quality, very rich in exuberant fruit. Once again we were thrilled - as the vineyard matures, the wine gets still more intense and complex. And more intense and more complex.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Tart and spicy, this brings tangy berry and pie cherry fruit into focus, buoyed by sappy acidity. The tannins are still young and chewy—a bit on the rugged side—and carry highlights of earth and sweet spice. Give it a good decanting or, better yet, a couple more years of bottle age."
