2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, cassis and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of violets and vanilla; full body; forward, mouth-filling, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors with notes of mocha and charred oak; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Shows good depth and some elegance that will continue to develop with a few more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended. 14.5% alcohol; 4,230 cases; 100% CS; released August 2013.
