WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
This 2012 Painter Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon is dark in color with a magenta hue. Varietal aromas of black currant and cherry are showcased with an oak signature of dark roasted coffee, licorice and spice. The black fruit flavor is clean and round, leaving a rich oak impression with soft tannin and a touch of “savage” varietal character that only Cabernet Sauvignon can bring.
