Houghton Jack Mann Cabernet 2012

Funny thing is, I’ve never really come at Jack Mann. I appreciate the history, longevity of the name, the significance of the single vineyard, the location, the judicious winemaking; I’ve just never had that moment of fireworks. I admire what comes out of the bottle; just never really got myself involved in drinking the wine, young or old. This 2012, a vintage which comes with some shouting from the rooftops, conspires with the recent run of reviews on WineFront admiring the world of cabernet sauvignon, and its iterations, and so I was itching to get this on the bench. CM wrote something worth reading from 2006 on Jack Mann, which gives some wonderful context too. Click here for a read.
