2012 Eternity

IN THE VINEYARD & WINERY

“Classic” and “perfect, “ just a bit of the praise earned by the 2012 Napa Valley growing season.  The 2012 Eternity tells the rest of the story.

Ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set and luxurious, uninterrupted warm days and cool nights made for exemplary conditions and optimal ripening. Once on the crush pad, we couldn’t help but celebrate as we watched our 2012 Eternity Cabernet berries flow amidst a dark burgundy stream of juice into their French Oak barrels.  There was no doubt that 2012 would become one of our most memorable vintages.

This may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from Clark-Claudon Vineyards. The inky/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Eternity (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot) exhibits a beautiful perfume of crème de cassis, blueberries, boysenberries and spring flowers. This dense, full-bodied wine possesses good freshness, tremendous opulence and richness, and a long finish. Drink this beauty over the next 15 or more years.  — Robert Parker
