The flagship 2010 Futo is rich, deep and implosive. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha, licorice, spices and leather all flesh out in a dark, brooding wine loaded with class and personality. Graphite, cloves and violets appear later, adding complexity, but the 2010 is mostly a wine of structure and pure power. The finish alone is eternal. What a stunning wine the 2010 has turned out to be. The blend is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. (AG)
The 2010 Proprietary Red Estate is composed of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. A fabulous example of Oakville Cabernet, it exhibits a deep purple color as well as beautiful notes of lead pencil shavings, forest floor, blueberries, blackberries and blackcurrants, full-bodied power, and admirable purity and symmetry. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered. (RP)
Good deep medium ruby. Very ripe but lively aromas of black raspberry and licorice. Wonderfully rich, deep and fine-grained, but with integrated acidity restraining the sweetness of the plush raspberry and graphite flavors. This huge wine finishes long and strong, with substantial broad, supple, toothcoating tannins and lingering notes of nuts and roasted coffee. I retasted the impressive 2009 next to this wine, and I gave the 2010 a slight edge for its (relatively) cooler character and greater refinement. It will also need longer than the earlier vintage to reach its plane of peak drinkability. (ST) 94+
Explosive fruit is framed by smoky, cedary oak, with a core of blackberry and wild berry flavors that are firmly tannic and shaded by an espresso-mocha flavor that adds dimension. Finishes with firm, gripping tannins and good length. (JL)
