Blankiet's 2010 Prince of Hearts Paradise Hills Vineyard offers up gorgeous aromatics, refined fruit and a total sense of harmony from the very first taste. Juicy red berries, plums, roses and cinnamon meld together in this effortless, gracious wine. In 2010 the Prince of Hearts boasts lovely depth and roundness backed by the acidity and vibrancy of this great vintage. All of the Blankiet hallmarks are in the glass. If that sounds appealing, believe me, it is. This is a fabulous effort. At many estates, this would be the top wine, here it is the second label. Incidentally, Prince of Hearts is the most fairly priced among the second wines of Napa Valley's elite properties. (AG)
Good deep ruby-red. Captivating mineral and floral lift to the aromas of raspberry and red licorice. Suave and perfumed in the mouth; not a monster of density but live acidity gives shape and lift to the juicy raspberry and spice flavors. This is too easy to drink! (ST)
The 2010 Prince of Hearts Paradise Hills Vineyard is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It offers up scents of unsmoked cigar tobacco, underbrush, forest floor, black currants, cherries, plums and Asian spice. With soft tannins, it is meant to be consumed over the next decade. The Blankiet Estate owned by Claude and Katherine Blankiet is beautifully situated on the lower hillsides of the Mayacamas Mountains, just behind the large Napanook estate of Dominus. (RP)
