Winemaker Notes

Opaque ruby-purple in color, the 2012 FUTO Oakville radiates complex aromas of lilac, brambly fruit, clove and charcoal. Texturally, this is perhaps the most approachable young FUTO since the 2007. The tannins are perfectly interwoven into the dense core of blackberry and blueberry liqueur along with notes of mocha, truffle and cedar. A full-bodied wine that never gets heavy and finishes with energy and purity. Drink now through 2035.

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 99
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The original wine from the Oakville Estate Vineyard is a relatively small cuvée of 546 cases. The 2012 Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. This is a drop-dead beautiful wine with an absolutely extraordinary nose of white flowers, blueberries, blackcurrants, licorice and camphor. Stunning forest floor notes also make an appearance in this ripe, full-bodied, opulent wine that is begging to be given a three-digit score. The silkiness of the tannins and the stunning purity of fruit of this unfined and unfiltered wine is simply breathtaking. This is just an incredible effort to drink now or over the next 30+ years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Offering clean aromas of blackberry, licorice, plum and currant, this is tight and complex on the palate, with a firm tannic backbone and accents of cedar, dusty earth and wood. Ends with promise but needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2020 through 2032.

Futo Winery Image
Futo Wines was established in 2002 by Tom and Kyle Futo of Wichita, Kansas. The Futo estate vineyards and winery are located in the western foothills of the Oakville appellation. There are five distinct estate vineyard blocks that span more than half a mile along the hillside. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominating varietal, though several acres consist of Cabernet Franc, as well as a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot. Since 2005, the best fruit from the estate is vinified, culminating in a wine they simply call "Futo."
