Scents of pain grille mocha black currants spices and plums emerge from this deep resonant wine. The 2010 possesses stunning textural depth and richness not to mention phenomenal overall balance. Readers who want to get a sense of the 2010 vintage without spending a huge amount of money may want to start here. This is a dazzling wine especially within its price range. The 2010 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. -Antonio Galloni

Good medium ruby. Blackberry menthol mint and spices on the nose and palate. Tightly wound and a bit youthfully spiky showing a more medicinal character than the riper 2009 version. Finishes with toothdusting tannins... Good medium ruby. Blackberry menthol mint and spices on the nose and palate. Tightly wound and a bit youthfully spiky showing a more medicinal character than the riper 2009 version. Finishes with toothdusting tannins and lingering spices.

Dark brooding purple at the core with very little variation at the rim. Chocolate raspberry plum and cassis leap out of the glass followed by jasmine savory spice and vanilla. Rich flavors permeate this full bodied wine... Dark brooding purple at the core with very little variation at the rim. Chocolate raspberry plum and cassis leap out of the glass followed by jasmine savory spice and vanilla. Rich flavors permeate this full bodied wine bolstered by wonderful tension and a creamy texture. Well-integrated tannins and mouthwatering acidity add intrigue. This is just a baby but it's already showing off some delicious definition. Very enjoyable now but better to cellar at least another 3-5 years and then enjoy the following 15-20. Ideal for any lover of Napa cabernet!
