The 2010 is similar to the 2006 in its exquisite balance of fruit, acid and tannin, and has gained considerable complexity since it was reviewed by The Wine Advocate last year. The ample structure and compact nature of the wine require one or two hours of decanting, after which it drinks elegantly because of its impeccable balance. The 2010 echoes a Left Bank Bordeaux in character. It is also our first release to include a small portion of Cabernet Franc from a new vineyard block we planted in 2007. There is no question it will continue to gain nuance with a few more years of cellaring, and should have a very long life ahead.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking in its beauty. A warm, resonant bouquet redolent of espresso, mocha, French oak, sweet herbs and tobacco leads to an expressive core of fruit in this rich, sumptuous wine. Full-bodied, rich and intense, yet supported by veins of incisive minerality, the 2010 impresses for its exceptional balance. The combination of finesse and overall harmony is nothing short of compelling. The estate's Cabernet Sauvignon remains one of the most distinctive wines in Napa Valley. I can hardly wait to see how the 2010 develops in bottle over the coming years. The blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.
Plump, rich and fleshy, featuring a ripe edge of plum jam, with touches of cherry, anise, cedar and loamy earth woven in. Gains depth and plushness on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 322 cases made.
