Wallis Estate

Wallis Family Estate 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley

100% Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon, 500 Cases Produced, 14.5% Alcohol

“Deep, powerful and explosive, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Wallis Family Estate saturates the palate with huge fruit and equally imposing mountain tannins. Cedar, tobacco and a host of savory notes develop in the glass, but it is the wine's sumptuous texture and broad resonant personality that stands out. Over time, the flavors acquire an element of brightness that balances some of the more overt leanings. This is a fabulous showing from Wallis.”  94 Points Awarded by Antonio Galloni December 2014

“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is more backward than the Little Sister, with more tannic structure as well as abundant cremede cassis, blackberry, unsmoked cigar tobacco and forest floor characteristics. This impressive, structured, full-bodied wine will benefit from several years of bottle age and should drink well for 12-15 years thereafter. This Diamond Mountain estate boasts the highly respected Thomas Brown as its winemaking consultant.” 93+ Points Awarded by Robert M. Parker, Jr.


"Firm and dense, this is well-focused on a tight core of mineral-laced dark berry, vanilla bean, licorice and espresso notes. Chewy and elegant, supported by fine-grain tannins, this wine will best be served by short-term cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028. 500 cases made." –JL 92 Points Awarded

Cellar Selection 94 Points Awarded, January 2015

"A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon given two years in French oak, this sanguine, expertly structured and elegant wine offers plenty of bright cassis and blackberry flavor on the palate, seducing with complex layers of dried herb and black tea. Enjoyable now, this wine will also benefit from time; hold through 2022." -V.B.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley

“The blockbuster 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Seraphim reveals finesse and elegance as well as substance and concentration. The dense purple color is followed by blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, stunning richness and a long finish with well-integrated tannin, wood and acidity. Enjoy this profound Cabernet over the next 15-20 years. This Diamond Mountain estate boasts the highly respected Thomas Brown as its winemaking consultant.”

 95 Points Awarded by Robert M. Parker, Jr.

“Judicious and delicious oak defines this now, offering a seductive toasty, mocha-laced core, joined by dusty currant, blackberry and blueberry fruit notes. Ends with oak-laced tannins and nice length. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made.”–JL 92 Points Awarded by Wine Spectator

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley

95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 2.5% Cab Franc

150 Cases Produced, 14.5% Alcohol, Suggested Retail $65

“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Little Sister exhibits attractive crème de cassis notes, impressive purity, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a nicely textured finish. There is not a hard edge to be found in this luscious, fruit-forward red. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years. This Diamond Mountain estate boasts the highly respected Thomas Brown as its winemaking consultant.” 90 Points Awarded by Robert M. Parker, Jr.

93 Points Awarded, January 2015

“Complex and compelling in dark plum and dusty dark chocolate, this Cabernet has under 3% Petit Verdot and under 3% Cabernet Franc blended in, providing the wine with elegance and concentration. Soft on the palate, it suggests vanilla oak with subtlety, bringing all the components together on the lingering finish.”  V.B. 

"Focused on a pure, rich core of blackberry, licorice, cigar box, mocha and cookie dough, this is very rich and dense, yet with a measure of finesse and polish. Glides along on the finish, ending with a minerally edge. Drink now through 2030. 150 cases made." –JL Wine Spectator 92 Points Awarded July 2015
