This is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the mix. The winemaker is Mike Kuimelis, Jr., and he and his parents have produced the Mantra label. This is a second brand that Mike Kuimelis is producing. The grapes are mostly from Alexander Valley and Dry Creek, but some are from other vineyards in Sonoma County. On the Mobius Website the wine sells for $25. As you may have read in previous posts, 2012 is one of the greatest California vintages in recent times. We are just beginning to see the likes of the 2012 Cabernets hitting the shelves. I like the way this wine drinks, with good aroma and flavors throughout. I think it will age nicely and, five years from now, it will be a more rounded wine. This Cab has pepper along with black fruit flavors. There is also a touch of a floral characteristic.
