This Cabernet exudes complex notes as soon as the cork is pulled. Rich dark fruit and berry characters with hints of cedar, olive and a clean earthiness that are attributed to top Napa Cabernet, add to the intriguing aromas. Held to the light, this elegant wine shimmers with a stunning deep purple-inky color that announces the intensity of the grapes. The palate has good structure and grip with more than ample tannins, although nicely balanced by fruit and spice. The 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet is rich, full and round from the initial taste and continuing as it fills the mouth, leading to a long, lingering, polished finish. Food Pairing: Red meats, lamb, cheeses. Winemaker Notes: After picking, hand-harvested fruit was fermented with utmost care and the resulting wine was aged 20 months in new oak (90% French and 10% American), with frequent racking the first year.
