Winemaker Notes

Intense, dark ruby color with enticing aromas of ripe, black plums and black currants. The richly textured plum and currant flavors are joined by accents of dark chocolate and some vanilla-scented oak. The ripe, vibrant tannins give the wine beautiful structure and an amazingly long finish. This is a big wine for just a little money. Drink it now or over the next few years to enjoy the fruit flavors at their best. It will pair well with traditional Cabernet-friendly foods like grilled or roasted meats.

Critical Acclaim

ST 89
International Wine Cellar

Medium ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, licorice and dried herbs accented by a peppery element. Moderately sweet and nicely creamy in the mouth, with a saline complexity to the chewy plum and currant flavors. Very suave cabernet sauvignon for the price range, finishing with fine-grained tannins that reach the front teeth and lingering notes of currant, plum, flowers, spices and licorice. (A second sample, which I rated 88 points, was a bit more medicinal and showed a stronger herbal element that gave the finish a slight dryness.)

RP 87
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 5% Malbec in its blend. It was aged for 9 months in seasoned French and American oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Notions of Asian spices, incense, violets, black currant, and blackberry set the stage for a slightly lean, savory, flavorful Cabernet meant for drinking over the next 3-4 years.
