Tasting notes

“The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon displays lots of creme de cassis, smoke and meaty characteristics in its pure, beautifully textured, long personality. It should drink well for 10-15 years.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate | Rated 90

Fully developed varietal flavors, admirable concentration and freshness, and a fine, textural quality are hallmarks of the cool, extended 2010 growing season. With eight years of age, 2010 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon still exhibits vivid blackberry and blueberry fruits supported by soft tannins. Savory earthbound layers of espresso, soy and Herbs de Provence are complemented by spicy oak notes of nutmeg and sandalwood. Mountain grown Merlot and Cabernet Franc add a layer of opulence, composure, and complexity to the final blend.
