Composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and small dollops of Syrah, Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a completely different animal than the Cabernet Franc. It exhibits lots of juicy black fruits intermixed with graphite, licorice and floral notes. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple, and the wine is medium to full-bodied and nicely concentrated with moderate but soft tannins in the finish. This wine should drink well for 15-20 years.

This is the winery’s basic Cabernet Sauvignon, but it shows the depth and complexity of their more expensive bottlings. This really exemplifies Napa’s rich, smooth tannins and dramatically ripe black currant, anise and dark chocolate flavors. The vineyards that contributed to the blend are some of the valley’s best. It’s a blend of all five classic Bordeaux varieties, with 1% Syrah.

Wine maker notes
Dark red-black in color with intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and currants interwoven with notes of toast and tar. Additional layers on the nose of rich spice with added hints of vanilla and maple. There are background notes of pencil lead as well. On the palate flavors of sweet ripe raspberries come through and the wine has smooth tannins and creamy weight with an impeccable balance and a long finish.
