Sweet, dense and nicely concentrated, offering both a fine-grained texture and rather suave tannins. The long finish is firmed by a mineral component. This is much easier to taste today than the two "mountain wines" and is the top value in the portfolio this year.

Complex and well-structured as always, Craig’s ’10 Affinity is a good followup to their ageable 2009. It’s dry, tannic and elegantly structured, with a firm minerality anchoring blackberry and plum fruit flavors. Don’t drink it now; give it until 2018 to let it begin to express itself.

Tar, licorice, scorched earth and incense are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in Robert Craig’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity. This is an especially dark, brooding wine loaded with character. The relatively large presence of Petit Verdot is felt in the wine’s baritone fruit and muscular personality. This is without question a highly intriguing wine, but it needs a few years for all the elements to harmonize. The 2010 is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - Antonio Galloni

Plenty of tar, blueberry and black licorice. Full body to medium to body, with soft, silky tannins and a medium-fruity finish. Attractive now.

An edge of dusty, loamy earth gives the currant, anise and cedar a drying edge, yet the finish lingers, and the flavors are pure and persistent. Drink now through 2024. – JL
