2012 "Paracelcian" Cabernet Sauvignon - John Evan Cellars
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Riefined educated and sophisticated, The Paracelcian is John Evan's elixer balancing the microcosm of Man, exhibited by careful farming and deliverate winemaking, with the macrocosm of Nature demonstrating the effect of the land and the climate. John Evan's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Georgia Wisner's renowned vineyard expertly farmed by Mike Wanless, shows some of the best varietal character and terroir of any recent John Evan Cab. Like Paracelcus himself (born Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim) John Evan recognizes that the true value of alchemy isn't in creating precious metals, but in formulating concotions to better the lives of other. In the aroma The Paracelcian find the tria prima of black cherry, cinnamon and cedar. In the mouth find medium body with intense flavor. Sola dosis facit venenum: the dos makes the poison; or everything in moderation, including moderation.
