2011 Kelly Fleming Estate Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Rich Cook, Wine Review Online
I think I tasted this wine when it was first released, and I remember giving it a favorable review. It’s unusual for a library wine like this one to come available twelve years down the road, but it is a testament to the longevity possible in Napa Valley. This is made in the “old school” Napa style, meaning it is not afraid to show a little green character. Here it balances the fruit nicely, and even at this age, it’s not taking over the proceedings. If your cellar isn’t yet full of older treasures, this is a glimpse into what can be.
