This wine is made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by smaller percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the lot aged almost two years in 75% new French oak. It presents itself as a classic example of the vintage and the valley, robustly bold and approachable in sage and red berry with a sturdy, sizable structure.
 
Critical Acclaim
 
 
The Wine Advocate 94 - The 2012 Winston Hill Proprietary Red Blend, which is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, is a pretty serious hombre. Dense ruby/purple in color with notes of créme de cassis, graphite and concentrated black cherries, the wine has good acidity, sweet tannin and a full-bodied mouthfeel. The purity and overall personality and character of the wine are impressive. It is a very youthful, relatively unevolved wine with tremendous upside. Give it another several years of bottle-age and drink it over the following 15-20 years. Rating: 94+
 
James Suckling 93 - A red with tension and backbone plus black currant and spice character. Full body, tight tannins and finesse. Mineral too. Best wine from Frank Family Vineyards. Drink now.
 
Wine Enthusiast 92 - This wine is made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by smaller percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the lot aged almost two years in 75% new French oak. It presents itself as a classic example of the vintage and the valley, robustly bold and approachable in sage and red berry with a sturdy, sizable structure.
 
Vinous / Antonio Galloni 91 - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Winston Hill stands out for its creamy mid-palate and expansive, textured personality. Mocha, new oak, menthol, red cherry and pomegranate notes blossom as this enveloping Cabernet shows off its ample, inviting personality. The Winston Hill is all about texture.
