The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a dark, mysterious beauty endowed with considerable depth and richness. Mocha, chocolate, spices and plums fuse together gracefully as this soft, supple wine takes shape in the glass. I very much like the immediacy of the 2010. Only a little bit of persistence is missing on the finish, but not enough to materially detract from what is a gorgeous bottle of wine. For Napa Valley standards, this is about as good as it gets for the money. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Good medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, mocha, licorice, tobacco and loam. Supple on entry, then ripe, suave and concentrated, with harmonious acidity framing the youthful currant, mocha and menthol flavors. A bit less giving today than the nose suggests but nicely sweet and sharply delineated. The firmly tannic, lively finish is a bit youthfully tough and in need of patience, but this cabernet offers outstanding potential. 92(+?) points
