90 points, Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon displays elegance and nuance that is immediately appealing. The aromatic profile is indicative of the cooler vintage displaying aromas of raspberry, sage, and dried flowers. The palate is well defined with superior tannins that intermingle with black cherry, plum, and cocoa creating a silky mouthfeel. After several minutes in the glass, the wine fleshes out providing dimension and depth while maintaining its fresh fruit focus which is wonderfully expressive in this wine. The finish lingers with fine tannins that are elegant and structured.
