The estate’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is endowed with serious power and depth. Layers of blue and black fruit, smoke, tobacco and licorice are woven together beautifully. Vivid yet rich and resonant, the 2010 stands out for its exceptional purity and overall harmony. Here, too, the oak needs time to integrate, but tha shouldn’t be an issue, as readers should not plan on opening bottles anytime soon. A creamy, layered finish laced with expressive blue and black fruits rounds things out in style.
Range: 93-96 Points
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a structured, tannic Cabernet built to last. Discrete notes of damp earth, black cherries and black currants are followed by a juicy attack and a medium-bodied, elegant, Bordeaux-like textural and flavor profile. Not a blockbuster, it is an elegant, finesse-styled effort to enjoy over the next decade.
