The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is stunning. Dark black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, menthol, tobacco and new leather wrap around the palate as this majestic, breathtaking wine shows off its personality, class and pure pedigree. Powerful yet elegant, delicate yet intense, the 2010 is firing on all cylinders today. Layers of fruit build to a crescendo of pure pleasure. Readers lucky enough to own the 2010 will want to cellar this beauty for at last a few years. In the meantime, though, it will be pretty impossible to resist. The blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. (AG)
Full ruby. Deep aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and crushed rock, with a sexy suggestion of candied fruit. Then amazingly precise and pure on the palate, with outstanding mineral cut and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of black fruits, graphite, cedar and lavender. Best today on the expanding, slowly mounting finish, shaped by noble tannins and redolent of captivating mineral and violet perfume. This, too, should improve in bottle for decades. If the Roberta's Blend resembles a top vintage of Petrus, this one is Latour-like--and I don't make those comparisons lightly.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is a 275-case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. It reveals intense red and black currant fruit, good acidity, hints of camphor and graphite, superb purity, a full-bodied texture and an extremely youthful (almost like a barrel sample) freshness and focus. This is a remarkably young yet promising, full throttle, beautifully made Cabernet Sauvignon that should be cellared for 5-7 years and drunk over the following two to three decades. (RP)
A classy, Bordeaux-like red from Napa, with ripe, rich fruit and tiers of currant, spice, cigar box and tobacco leaf. Well-built, showing a measure of restraint, this delivers fine-grained tannins and a long, tapered finish. (Web-2013)
