Cab Sauv 2012, QDM Dessert Wine 375ml Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard
The 2012 vintage gave us a bountiful crop; enough to give us the flexibility to really play and explore new possibilities.
Quinta Da Montanha means “View of the Mountains,” and this port-style dessert wine reflects the power of mountain-grown fruit. A robust alternative to after dinner drinks, this wine has moderate-to-low residual sugar, a potent dosage of alcohol and plenty of flavors to capture your interest—sip after sip.
Modeled somewhere between a ruby and a tawny-style port, this wine has plenty of depth and layers. Aromas reveal ripe dark berries, bright cherry and traces of caramel, cedar and minerality. The luscious entry releases the richness of Cabernet with flavors of blackberry, forest floor and a mineral essence married with the port-like qualities of chocolate covered cherry, espresso bean and berry-coated caramel. A velvety texture with round edges, along with the vivid acidity, gives a unique profile and balance to this delicious dessert wine. Though enjoyable now, this wine can be cellared for 5-10 years, or more.
