"Perfect" 100 Points
"It doesn't get any better than 2012 Levy & McClellan Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. An utterly vivid, breathtaking wine, the 2012 is built like a thoroughbred with immaculate balance and overall sense of harmony that may be savored tonight (decanting recommended) or anytime over the next decade. The opaque purple/onyx color is followed by intense, soaring aromas of crème de cassis, in addition to blueberry and blackberry fruit. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, vanillin, exotic spices, and hints of cocoa, this Cabernet is cashmere-like in quality and texture. The mesmerizing finish includes notes of graham cracker as well as Toblerone that dazzles the palate with finesse for a full minute. Wow!"
