The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot that spent 20 months in 67% new French oak. Classic Cabernet on the nose, with gorgeous creme de cassis, raspberry ganache, lead pencil shavings and hints of flowers, it is rich, concentrated and decadent on the palate, yet has brilliant purity, a weightless, elegant texture and knockout polish to its tannin. Already approachable due to its balance and overall seamlessness, this full-bodied effort can be consumed now and over the coming 10-15 years. Drink now-2025+. - Jeb Dunnuck

This is a heavy-duty Cabernet, big in every way, with rich black cherry and cassis fruit, and dense, dark tannins. The long, slightly grainy finish reinforces the impression of raw power, yet the wine retains perfect proportion and is nicely differentiated from the other 2010s crafted by winemaker Chris Figgins.

A swarm of fine tannins are wound around a plush core of black cherry, pomegranate and red pepper in this firm red, persisting impressively on the extended, coffee-inflected finish. Needs time in the cellar to unfold...

Needs time in the cellar to unfold. Best after 2015. – HS

92+ Bright ruby-red. Vibrant nose offers cassis, blackberry, Baker's chocolate, minerals, violet and licorice. Polished on entry, then juicy and intense in the middle, offering pristine dark berry and spice flavors... 92+ Bright ruby-red. Vibrant nose offers cassis, blackberry, Baker's chocolate, minerals, violet and licorice. Polished on entry, then juicy and intense in the middle, offering pristine dark berry and spice flavors framed by penetrating acidity. Higher-pitched than the 2009; lovely cooler-year definition and energy here. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and sneaky persistence. Potentially the best release yet from Doubleback, and balanced to age.

Winery

Doubleback

Owning a winery was been a longtime aspiration of Drew Bledsoe, a former NFL quarterback, since it would allow him to combine his passion for fine wine and love of the Walla Walla Valley. Returning to his hometown in 2007, he planted his estate vineyard, McQueen, in SeVein Vineyards of Distinction. The following year, he launched Doubleback, an estate-focused winery, to produce ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla Valley. It has since received numerous accolades including a spot on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list.

The estate’s McQueen Vineyard spans 50 acres, planted to 14.4 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Acquired in 2011, the Bob Healy Vineyard is planted to 9.7 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
