    Winemaker's Notes:

    An endlessly generous, layered and complex expression of To Kalon terroir: The clean blackberry entry opens up into a delicious mouthful of wild berries, black olive, sage and cassis framed by warm mocha, toasted bread and a touch of granitic minerality. Fine, well-integrated tannins and deep, rich flavors that linger... and linger...

    Critical Acclaim:

    A stunner-dignified and mature (yet so age-worthy). This wine is goosebump-giving world-class, from its blue violet nose to its elegant core. The gritty tannins soften and it evolves with a lava flow of dark chocolate and dark black cherry and cardamom, held up with acidity and pedigree.

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve boasts stunning depth, power and richness. Exotic, powerful and structured, the 2010 emerges from the glass with masses of dark fruit, smoke, licorice, menthol, plums and cloves. Today, the 2010 Reserve is naturally quite primary, but all the ingredients are there for it to develop into a spectacular wine. Readers will need to give the 2010 a few years to soften, as the tannins are a bit imposing at this stage, despite the wine's considerable appeal today. An exotic melange of blackberries, blueberries, menthol, tar and licorice round out the sumptuous finish. What a gorgeous wine this is.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dense purple color, more tannin, structure and spice, terrific richness and plenty of black currant, vanillin and loamy soil characteristics. Given past track records, this full-bodied, impressive Reserve should easily age for 25-35 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Beautifully crafted, pure, rich and complex, featuring tiers of red and black fruit, cherry, raspberry and spice, gaining subtle oak and fresh earth details. The fine-grained tannins deliver backbone and grip, imparting an accent of dried herbs and oak on the graceful finish. Drink now through 2026. 7,197 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    (15% alcohol; mostly from To Kalon fruit): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and tobacco leaf are complicated by nuances of wild mint, black tea and mocha oak. Silky, nicely sweet and light on its feet, with black cherry and mineral flavors joined by herbs and loam. Finishes subtle and persistent, with plenty of ripe tannins to support a graceful evolution in bottle.

    One of the best wines I've ever had. I've had other Cabs in this price point, but none wowed me like this one did.

    One of the world's top wines year-in and year-out. Made to show richness and elegance, the 2010 offering is smashingly good; ripe fruit and smooth oak in a well balanced package; long and lacy in the finish. Made from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    If I was going to be stranded on a desert island the rest of my life but could have a lifetime supply of one and only one wine...This or BV La Tour would be it. My problem is letting it alone so it can get some cellar age...should be spectacular down the line.
