The only site not in Oakville is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Amoenus Vineyard from Calistoga. It possesses the lowest alcohol, 14.1%, of these three offerings. Displaying none of the rusticity or gritty tannins often found in fruit from the Calistoga AVA, it offers wonderful suppleness, blackberry and forest floor notes, medium to full body, and a rich, pure style that is still young and unevolved. This 2010 is accessible now, but will be even better in 5-6 years, and should last two decades or more. (RP)
*Cellar Selection* Tiers of dark chocolate, black currants, violets and cedar mark this wonderfully rich young Cabernet, which contains a drop of Malbec that brings an animal note. The wine is almost black at the center and very tannic, suggesting ageability. With its inherent balance, it should have no problems negotiating the next 10 or 15 years.
Pure, rich, dense and layered, with dark berry, pomegranate and boysenberry notes, accented by cedar and crushed rock details. Shows impressive power and finesse on the finish, where the flavors linger, ending with a dash of dill. Drink now through 2023. (JL)
