The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley wraps around the palate with mocha, chocolate, violets and new leather. Despite its explosive personality, the straight Napa Valley bottling is pretty approachable for the vintage. I especially like the focus of the finish. In 2010, the Cabernet Sauvignon includes 6% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard sources are State Lane, Stagecoach and Mast. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 92+ points. (AG)
Opaque purple. Cherry-vanilla, blackberry, floral oils and oak spices on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive, offering appealingly sweet dark berry flavors that pick up spice and herb nuances with air. Shows very good energy on the finish, which features supple tannins and a hint of sweet chewing tobacco.
***Cellar Selection*** This is a fine Cabernet, dry and complex, with beautiful Napa tannins. It has layers of blackberries, currants and mocha, and the oak is apparent. There are some overripe raisins in there, but nothing the wine can’t handle. With a ripe, spicy finish, it drinks well now, but will be better after 2018.
Dense, yet supple and graceful, with tiers of black fruit, blackberry, wild berry, subtle spice, cedar and black licorice flavors. Ends with firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022. (JL)
