Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque purple color as well as attractive notes of graphite, creme de cassis, forest floor, and hints of high-quality toast and graphite. Dense, full-bodied, succulent and opulent, it should drink well young and age easily for 20+ years. (Dec 2014)

Wine maker notes
The grapes that go into each bottle of Perfect Season are meticulously grown and cultivated to the exacting standards of our winemaking and viticultural teams. At harvest, grape clusters are picked by hand and placed in small micro-bins to prevent skins from rupturing. In the winery, whole clusters are first sorted, removing any damaged or imperfect ones, and gently crushed and de-stemmed. The resulting individual berries are then hand-sorted again before fermentation. In essence, each berry used to create Perfect Season has been personally selected by our team.

The works of Thomas Moran have inspired the human spirit and captured imaginations for over 150 years. Although best known as one of the premiere painters of Western landscapes, he created equally accomplished paintings of Mexico, Italy, and varied seascapes. His depictions of the Western United States were often America’s first look at the remote lands that later became preserved as national parks. Indeed, Moran’s illustrations and watercolors painted during Ferdinand Hayden’s famous 1871 Geological Survey Expedition to “the Yellow Stone Territory” were instrumental in the creation of Yellowstone National Park. Fittingly, Mount Moran in neighboring Grand Teton National Park serves to honor his pioneering character. Moran’s work shown on the Perfect Season label known as “Moonlight in the Canon” is one of the most treasured paintings in Norma and Lamar’s collection. It was painted during Moran’s travels to Mexico in the 1880s to conduct a field study of an area surrounding the silver mine near Maravatio. The artist created intricate layers of transparent glazes to capture the luminous quality of the moonscape. The painting was selected to portray the importance of the moon’s influence on seasons and viniculture.

Bidwell Creek Vineyard is located in Knights Valley in the Sonoma County AVA. Richly colored by California history, Knights Valley dates back to the era of Spanish land grants. The area was sparsely populated when Jose de los Santos Berryessa, a sergeant at the Presidio of Sonoma, was given the land as a gift from the Mexican Governor in 1843. He built an adobe hunting lodge that still exists today and named the area Rancho Mallocomes. In 1850, after the Mexican War, California became a United States territory and Berryessa lost possession of the land. Thomas Knight, a participant in the Bear Flag Revolt at Sonoma, purchased the northern portion of Rancho Mallocomes in 1853 and planted row crops, orchards and vineyards. He expanded the hunting lodge and was highly regarded by those in the area as a successful farmer. Although he owned the ranch for only 21 years, the area was renamed Knights Valley in his honor. Knights Valley received significant recognition in the late 1870s and 1880s when author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote “Silverado Squatters” in a cabin on Mount St. Helena overlooking Knights Valley. Shortly thereafter, the famous 19th century artist Thomas Hill honored Knights Valley and Mount St. Helena through a series of paintings on canvas. Throughout its history, Knights Valley has remained an agricultural area and today is home to world-class wineries earning critical acclaim from wine critics and collectors alike. In 2000, Norma and Lamar Hunt purchased a ranch along the banks of Bidwell Creek and began restoration of the site that would later become Bidwell Creek Estate and Vineyard. After restoring the riparian border along their stretch of Bidwell Creek and reinvigorating the Estate’s prime agricultural soils, they planted the first block of vineyard in 2002.
