From the bottle:
“Winemaker Nick Goldschmidt says ‘Katherine thinks outside the box. She is one to always challenge the status quo and go off in her own direction. Working on this wine together we now have a greater understanding of our, and the wine’s, diversities and complexities. I think it’s truly one of the best results for Alexander Valley Cabernet and shows this 20 year old single vineyard in a new light…like Katherine’s innovative character.’
The 2012 Katherine Goldschmidt Crazy Creek Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignonspent 18 months in 20% new French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. The wine opens with a very nice aroma full of blackberry, toffee, cola and vanilla. Tasting reveals lots of rich, deep fruit (mainly blackberry and plum) with excellent cola and vanilla. Add to that tons of spicy, smoky, oaky notes and you have one tasty Cabernet. The 2012 is probably still a bit young, but overall I liked it just as much as the 2011. And just like the 2011, it makes a great match for a cheeseburger or a steak. It finishes long with lots of lingering cola, oak and blackberry flavors.
Overall Rating: 7.0
