The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is already drinking remarkably well with abundant notes of creme de cassis, incense, licorice and spring flowers. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and built like a skyscraper, this wine is intense and full with velvety tannins and an overall impression of a voluptuous, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 10-15 years.

Bright medium ruby. Deep, alluring aromas of blue and black berries, camphor and almond extract, with a light herbal element providing lift. Very suave, rich and sweet but conveys a distinctly lower-alcohol impression than the 2009, despite the fact that the technical numbers are nearly identical. Not an opulent or particularly powerful 2010; in fact, this classic vintage is quite backward today, with its fruit in the deep background. Serious tannins and a tight finish call for extended cellaring. Steve Pride noted that the wine actually has softer tannins than the 2010 Reserve Claret, but I find this bottle clenched today. I would expect it to merit an even higher score a decade from now. 94+ (ST)
This is a great Cabernet, blended with a drop of Petit Verdot. It shows the intensity of mountain fruit, with incredibly concentrated black currant and cassis flavors, with superb tannins. Few Cabernets have shown this degree of ageability.
A Cabernet with lots of dried-red-fruit and eucalyptus character as well as animal and leather undertones. Full body with firm tannins and a fresh finish.
