"2012 Long Shadows 'Feather' is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made from esteemed winemaker Randy Dunn of Dunn Vineyards in Napa Valley. As this opens in the glass, it unleashes perfumed aromatics of fresh black cherry and dark fruits, as well as anise and oak on the intoxicating nose. Somewhat of a backwards wine, currently the palate is currently shut down with flavors of anise, black cherry, blackberry and moderate tannins and a brilliant acid backbone. Drink in 2017 until 2025, as this one needs time for the fruit to integrate and the tannins to mellow. The wine is reminiscent of the 2007 Feather, which took a few years to be fully expressive.(Best 2017-2025) - OB."
