2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine & Spirits, December 2013
"Scents of black currant and rhubarb lend a bit of sweet relief to this lean, narrowly focused mountain wine. Overall, it’s more savory than sweet, with firm black tannins that carry notes of peppercorns and beefstock."
Appearance: Deep ruby
Aromas: Ripe black currant, dark cherry, and lilac interlace with black pepper, bay leaves, coffee, and toasted oak to create a rich, dense nose.
Flavors: Powerful, rich, and textured notes of dark cherry, ripe plum, caramel, and vanilla weave an intense, voluminous mouthfeel accented by hints of anise and mocha. The back palate is rounded out by a lengthy yet smooth finish of vibrant sweet oak, tobacco leaves, and black olives.
