A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%), the nose of the 2012 are bright and persistent and open in the glass to reveal beautiful aromatics with layers of cassis, espresso bean & dark plum fruit characters with hints of wild herbs and spices. The palate is complex and persistent with supple red cherry fruit characters, all spice and tobacco notes balanced by a mouth-watering and finely laced freshness and a refined mineral quality which leads to a long finish. Impresses with its overall balance and finesse. Although this wine is delicious on release it will develop greater complexity with age.

The 2012 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) impresses for the approachable, yet intriguing, delivery of fruit. The style is fruit-forward and ripe, yet the wine is not banal. There’s a fluidity to the bouquet that brings it to cherry and blackberry with soft tones of leather and tobacco woven deep within. The mouthfeel is voluptuous and rich without feeling heavy or flat. The 2012 vintage shows good energy and verve, with a long flavor trail of chocolate and toasted espresso that leaves a favorable mark.

Reviews & Scores

Aromas of blackberry and blueberry, with hints of wet earth and spices such as cloves. Full body with round, chewy tannins but polished and caressing. A juicy, succulent finish. One of the best ever. Drink or hold.
