WE 93 WA 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Made with 16% Merlot to soften it, this is an unctuous, fully satisfying wine, restrained and complex, grown on the family’s Chiles Valley estate. It opens with ripe red berry and currant as well as a suggestion of vanilla, the oak providing structure and texture. Enjoy through 2025. Cellar Selection!
According to Robert Parker - A beautiful bouquet of blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with floral undertones jumps from the glass of the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure and nicely textured, this strong effort possesses lots of character and richness. The finish is reassuringly long. Enjoy it over the next 10+ years.
According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright, dark red. Pure but withdrawn aromas of cassis, blueberry, licorice and tobacco leaf are lifted by floral and minty high notes. Juicy, tightly coiled and high-pitched, offering noteworthy intensity and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of cassis, blackberry, mint and licorice. Finishes with a firm spine of tannins that will need a good five years of patience.
