The 2010 Cab has a dark, dense, rich ruby red color. Aromas are intense; deep ripe wild blackberry and black cherry, currants, and toasty caramel sweetness from a mix of new and used French oak barrels. Hints of fresh roasted espresso beans and spice leads to a silky yet vibrant mouthful of delicious Cabernet. The wine opens up in the glass and just keeps growing so enjoy the ride! Flavors across the palate mirror the aromas with a seamless, dense yet silky impression. Lightly mouth coating tannins linger in the strikingly long finish, adding structure and texture without dryness. The overall impression is of a big luxurious Cabernet with impeccable balance and finesse. The blend has Cab Sauv, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cab Franc in proportions to complete a beautiful, classically made, age-worthy Napa Valley Cab Sauv. Enjoy!
