Promontory - Napa Valley 2012

Budbreak on April 18th marked the beginning of an idyllic growing season. The weather was warm throughout the year, but without spells of extreme heat. While most of Napa Valley experienced a better harvest, the cooler climate of the territory provided a much more typical ripening pattern. Due to Even Ripening, The Harvest Picking began on October 12th along with the western ridge and continued with volcanic soil. The east-facing slopes followed, and the harvest concluded on October 26th. As a result, forty-six harvest successes were achieved in almost thirty distinct vinifications. After a year of aging, the selection for the final blend was made. The consistency of quality is a theme, but it is not the case that the subject has been chosen.

The 2012 Promontory is a terrific example of the vintage. Soft, radiant and charming, the 2012 will drink well pretty much upon release and certainly earlier than any other vintage. The 2012 is a sophisticated and super-polished wine.

Wonderful texture and richness with soft tannins and a round mouthfeel. Full body plus tobacco, chocolate and spice. Black currants and blackberry too. It's aged five years, about three years in bottle. About 95% cabernet sauvignon, the rest malbec and petit verdot.

Flashy and ripe to the core, the 2012 Promontory captures the essence of the year in its explosive, radiant personality. The flavors are beautifully layered in the glass as this expansive, voluptuous wine blossoms over time. Even with its considerable sweetness and texture, the raw power of this site can't be denied. I expect the 2012 will drink better earlier than most vintages, but it has more than enough stuffing to continue to develop in bottle for many years.

The 2012 Promontory, which is the softest vintage to date, was slightly better this year than last year, as it had rounded out. It does not have the depth of the 2013, but it is a great wine on its own merits. Notes of new saddle leather, loamy soil, and crushed rock intermingle with blackcurrants, plum, tobacco leaf and spice in a full-bodied, wonderfully pure and large-scaled style with ripe, well-integrated tannin. It is accessible enough to enjoy, and in spite of its massiveness, it is certainly capable of evolving beautifully for 30 or more years.

This 80-acre estate with 35 acres of vineyards high in the Mayacamas Mountains south of the Harlan Estate is another Cabernet Sauvignon project from Bill Harlan. It is hard to think of anything in Napa Valley as unexplored, pure wilderness, but Promontory Estate qualifies. I saw these wines last year, and now I’ve gotten the chance to see both the 2012 and 2013 again, and they are both even better than I had predicted when I tasted them last year. They are nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon with touches of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot in them, and probably the best way to compare them to the wines of Harlan Estate or the Bond single-vineyard projects is to describe them as more like a Napa version of a great St-Estèphe such as Château Montrose thanks to their spicy, earthy characteristics, although I’m not suggesting there is any of the rusticity that one might expect from these mountain terroirs.

Bright medium ruby. Black raspberry, mocha, coffee and wet stone on the nose, with a hint of almost candied ripeness. Plush and voluminous without coming across as heavy; the mid-palate offers compelling building sweetness without quite the definition or nobility of the 2010. But then this very ripe wine, racked just once when the blend was made, still has nearly a year of elevage ahead of it. Finishes with huge but ripe, nutty tannins and outstanding length.
