AG 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Dark plums, mocha, smoke, new leather and cloves take shape in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask. There is plenty of intensity and power in the glass, but the formidable tannins are those of an equally pushed extraction. Tasted next to the 2012 , the 2010 almost tastes like a wine from a different estate.According to Wine Spectator - Tight, rich and focused on a dense core of spice, dried dark berry, cedar and tobacco leaf, this is firmly tannic, ending with loamy earth, black licorice and crushed rock details. Drink now through 2023.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask is a big, bold wine loaded with mocha, espresso, dark cherries and plums. An initial blast of fruit is followed by firm tannins that clamp down on the mid-palate and finish. If the 2010 Cask softens it might merit a higher score, but my impression is it will always retain a certain element of compactness. Though generally a very good and certainly well made wine, I can’t say the 2010 has a great deal of personality. The blend is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Tasting Notes - Our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers an alluring nose of dark cherries,blueberries, chocolate, tobacco and sweet toasted oak. Round upon entrance with a distinct note of cranberry, the wine is very consistent between aroma and taste, generously opening up on the mid-palate and persisting with long, luscious flavors on the finish. One hour of decanting is recommended. With structure and complexity, this rendition of Cabernet Sauvignon will be receptive to aging. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.8% ABV. Rated 90+
