2012 ToyMaker 3-Bottle Original Wood Case

Our Inaugural vintage


For a limited time only during the holiday season, we have decided to re-release a small amount of our inaugural 2012 ToyMaker Cabernet Sauvignon with Nutcracker label in a 3-bottle original wood case.


The 2012 growing season offered dry weather conditions and moderate temperatures. The few spells of high heat that were interspersed throughout allowed for an optimal ripening of the fruit and full maturation of the tannins. Harvest came at a leisurely pace, letting us pick at the most ideal circumstances possible. The resulting wines are succulent, bursting with ripe flavors, and seamless in their balance and purity.

On the nose, the 2012 ToyMaker has hints of warm cherry tart, ripe fig, baking spice, and fresh lavender. The palette is rich with sweet tannins, luscious red and black fruits, cream de cassis, and candied almonds. The moderate alcohol levels and slightly higher acidity lend a delightfully charming character of bright finesse, mouth-watering fruit, and a finish of on-going layers and length.
