2012 The Bishop Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

This wine honors the artistry and passion of Winemaker Steve Leveque, whose last name translates in French to “The Bishop.” The Bishop embodies a truly special experience – the combination of complexity, concentration, and elegance crafted from exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.

The wine is dark purple in color, exuding aromas of blackberry, dark spice, black peppercorn, anise, cedar chest and a slight floral note. The palate is vibrant, eminating lush, dark fruit of tremendous opulence. The finish is powerful, long and nuanced with a decadent chocolatey character.

Appellation: Napa Valley
Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Barrel Aging: 22 Months in 100% New French Oak
Winemaker: Steve Leveque

"The Bishop moves slightly in the direction of more blueberry and black raspberry fruit. It has slightly more floral notes, a saturated and impressive purple/black color, full-bodied opulence and, again, a stunning richness and texture. Quite deep, full, powerful and age-worthy."
