Operatives' Choice

Mission Codename W3... 2... 1... gone

Welcome to the Wine Spies Intrigue Awards for 2016! Each year we recognize our most popular and most sought-after wines from the previous year - while giving our Operatives one final chance to secure some of the winning wines for themselves.

We may never show this wine again, so grab yours while you still can.

Today’s W3 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is our 2016 Wine Spies Intrigue Award winner for Operatives’ Choice: Best 2012 Napa Cabernet and the best wine that we’ve ever tasted from this Wine Spies favorite winery.

This is classic Napa Valley Cabernet, from one of the best vintages on record. Wine Spectator Magazine awarded the Napa Cab vintage a full 96 points in 2012.

Rich and ripe on the nose, with candied cherry, plum, blueberry, blackberry, sweet spice, tobacco, chocolate, earth and a hint of cracked pepper.

On the palate, bold blackberry, blueberry and plum take the lead. Then, baker’s chocolate, sweet tobacco leaf, dark spice, oak, and cracked pepper follow on.

This wine is expected to sell out. You’ve been warned! ;-)
