From the bottle:
“For five generations, our family has been dedicated to the art of winemaking and to the philosophy that the quality of a wine originates in the vineyard. Our estate-grown Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon is named after California’s first agricultural commissioner renowned for planting vine cuttings from many of Bordeaux’s top Chateaux in the temperate Livermore Valley in the 1880s. This wine has rich, lush flavors of cherry, chocolate and oak with an enjoyable long finish.
The 2012 Wente Vineyards Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon spends 14 months in oak barrels and it shows wonderfully in the very pleasant and complex aromas of black cherry, oak, vanilla, chocolate, a little green olive and baking spice. The wine tastes really delicious with an excellent smooth texture and succulent flavors of blackberry, plum, black cherry and cola. Oak, more dark fruit and lots of lovely vanilla and baking spice notes linger for a very long time on the long finish.
Overall Rating: 7.8
