This wine opens with an abundance of bright fruit. Aromas of ripe juicy blackberries, plum and toasted barrels delight the nose. Entry on the palate is silky and smooth with great balance which frames round integrated tannins. The structure builds on the palate with mouth coating richness and warmth leading to a lush ripe long lasting finish.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a knock-out nose of black currants, camphor and a hint of spring flowers. I was blown away by the wine’s richness, purity, depth and dimension. There are just under 1,000 cases of this stunning Cabernet, which should drink well for 20+ years. It is a big time sleeper of the vintage.
Salvestrin can boast multiple generations farming its vineyards since 1932, so this is by no means a newcomer to the Napa Valley wine scene. These wines never seem to get old, and this will be one our grandchildren can enjoy circa 2050.
