The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot that spent 20 months in 67% new French oak. Classic Cabernet on the nose, with gorgeous creme de cassis, raspberry ganache, lead pencil shavings and hints of flowers, it is rich, concentrated and decadent on the palate, yet has brilliant purity, a weightless, elegant texture and knockout polish to its tannin. Already approachable due to its balance and overall seamlessness, this full-bodied effort can be consumed now and over the coming 10-15 years. 2,000 cases made. Drink now-2025+. First created in 2007 Doubleback is a collaboration between childhood friends Chris Figgins and Drew Bledsoe., They source grapes from all over the Walla Walla Valley, including McQueen (this is Bledsoe’s estate vineyard), Loess, Seven Hills, LeFore and Pepper Bridge vineyards.

*A Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2013* This is a heavy-duty Cabernet, big in every way, with rich black cherry and cassis fruit, and dense, dark tannins. The long, slightly grainy finish reinforces the impression of raw power, yet the wine retains perfect proportion and is nicely differentiated from the other 2010s crafted by winemaker Chris Figgins.
Firm in texture, with a swarm of fine tannins wound around a plush core of black cherry, pomegranate and red pepper flavors that persist impressively on the extended, coffee-inflected finish. Needs time in the cellar to unfold. Best after 2015.
