  • 2012 Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 90 pts

    eRobertParker.com #222

    Dec 2015 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 90 points

    Drink: 2015 - 2025

     

    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, has interesting charcuterie, meaty smells and roasted herbs in the nose, followed by black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It is a Mediterranean style of Cabernet Sauvignon that has lush, soft tannin, a dense ruby/purple color and immediate drinkability. However, there's no doubt it can age well for another 5-10 years.

  • 2010 Salvestrin Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 95 pts

    Drink: 2013 - 2033

     

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a knock-out nose of black currants, camphor and a hint of spring flowers. I was blown away by the wine’s richness, purity, depth and dimension. There are just under 1,000 cases of this stunning Cabernet, which should drink well for 20+ years. It is a big time sleeper of the vintage.

     

    Salvestrin can boast multiple generations farming its vineyards since 1932, so this is by no means a newcomer to the Napa Valley wine scene. These wines never seem to get old, and this will be one our grandchildren can enjoy circa 2050.

    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D from the Dr. Crane Vineyard is a beauty. Notes of wet pebbles, crème de cassis, blackberry and earth jump from the glass of this cuvée that represents 350 cases. The wine is rich, full, complete, with beautiful sweet fruit, ripe tannin and a multi-layered mouthfeel. This is terrific wine to drink over the next 15 or more years.

    Drink: 2013 - 2043  The more expensive 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D (which stands for 3 blocks, 3 lots, 3 barrels, 3 daughters) is even better than the basic cuvee, but of course, there is virtually none of it. It possesses a black/purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of black currants, blackberries, camphor, incense and hints of background wood and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich, pure and multidimensional, it is a killer Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25-30 years. Kudos to the Salvestrin family!

    Drink: 2030-2035

     

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D is a slightly down-sized version of the 2007. It is a big wine, rich, full-bodied, with a similar opaque purple color, loads of fruit, graphite, and licorice, and plenty of potential. It is a little less flamboyant than the 2007 but will probably age just as well and just as long (20-25 years).

    Drink: 2030+

    The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D is a limited production, inky purple wine that offers big, chocolate notes intermixed with licorice, blackberry, black currants, and spice. The wine is rich and full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, texture, and length. The tannins are there, but are concealed by a cascade of black fruit. This serious wine will benefit from several years of cellaring and drink well for 20 or more years.
