"The Creator" 2012

K Vintners

It has everything! It’s hard to let go of the nose. Warm earth, under growth. Mouth filling suede, ethereal. This wine completes me.

Reviews

  • "94 points. Top 100 Wines of 2015: #31. Supple, expressive, polished and generous, with layers of dark berry, cherry, black olive and spice flavors that merge harmoniously on the long and refined finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 1,301 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "93-95 points. Moving to the Bordeaux styled releases and a blend of 70% Cabernet and 30% Syrah, the 2012 The Creator offers up a classic bouquet of cassis, lead pencil shavings and hints of herbs to go with a full-bodied, layered and balanced profile on the palate. Possessing fabulous Cabernet character, with rock star texture and building tannin, it will have another 12-15 years of prime drinking." (Wine Advocate)
