Saint Helena Winery ‘Sympa’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Rating: 95 points

This wine has a dense purple color, a beautiful nose of white flowers, blue and black fruits and charcoal embers followed by a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel with terrific purity, sweet finely grained tannins, low acidity, plenty of glycerin and punch. The complexity is already starting to push through with secondary nuances. This compelling effort can be drunk now or cellared for another 20 years. – Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Saint Helena Winery Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Rating: 91 points

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is delicious and, like so many 2012s, is open-knit, full-bodied, round, juicy and hedonistic with loads of blue and black fruits, cedar wood, licorice, graphite and background oak. This full-bodied, sex-pot of a wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15 or more years. – Robert M. Parker, Jr.
