“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Pony Express is made from Clone 337 (95%) and 5% Cabernet Franc. This 200-case cuvée spends time in 50% Darnajou and 50% Taransaud barrels. A sensational Cabernet, it possesses abundant notes of spring flowers, new saddle leather, licorice, baking spices, blackberries and cassis. Full-bodied with a terrific, voluptuous texture and an opulent personality, this is fabulous and will provide sumptuous drinking over the next 15 or more years.” – Robert Parker
These incredible wines should be sought out by anyone looking for amazing, high test, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal Cabernet Sauvignons. Made by Russell Bevan, they share a similar style to his portfolio of enormously endowed, world-class, profound Cabernet Sauvignons. There are two cuvées, both from the Oakville AVA.
