"The 2012 Jones Family Vineyards The Sisters Cabernet Sauvignon is a multi-layered chorus of aromas and flavor that displays a great sense of harmony.  After experiencing the aromatic profile of clove, jasmine, tanned leather, eucalyptus and spiced ripe plum what remains is the purity of the vintage.  On the palate deep red fruit and spice notes of black cherry, cassis and cocoa nibs interplay front-to-back and are framed by a dusty earthiness that provides enough structure to this lush, accessible wine.  The Sisters is a remarkable wine that consistently over delivers."
- Thomas Rivers Brown, Winemaker; Jones Family Vineyards

"The 2012 The Sisters is a great example of the year. Dark red cherries, plums, sweet spices and a touch of French oak meld together in a supple, juicy Cabernet with tons of near and medium-term appeal. The ripe, racy finish is quite appealing. There is a lot to like in this voluptuous, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon." 91 points

"The 2012 The Sisters is a beauty. Dense ruby/purple with lots of plum and blackcurrant fruit, the wine is medium-bodied, pure and has a lush, long finish." 91 points
