    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Cave was aged for 28 months in an 85/15 mixture of French and American oak (70% new, the rest second use). It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. When last seen, about two years back, this seemed pretty terrific and a big bargain. It still is. It has moderated some tannins and is a bit more approachable now. Mingling a bit of cream and velvet for texture, this has reasonable mid-palate finesse, fine focus and a big finish. It is also a bit too affected by its wood, and its power is still pretty evident. It can be approached, but that doesn't mean it is fully ready, in other words. As has been the trend with these submissions, an hour or so of air makes it tighter. Then, another hour brings it back around. It eventually shows well. Ultimately, the wood is a bit more of an issue than the tannins. This has a long way to go, perhaps longer than I think. Drink date: 2018-2033. Score - 91. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Dec. 28, 2018)
