eRobertParker.com. #215 Oct 2014. Reviewer : Neal Martin. The 2012 The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon, which is matured over 18 months in second-, third- and fourth-fill French oak barrels, has a slightly dusty bouquet with broody, earthy black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with savory black fruit, but it is missing some freshness on the espresso-tinged finish that cuts away abruptly.
