AROMA
with aromatic nuances of crystallized violets, with aeration the young wine reveals more of its blueberry pie ripeness and graham cracker crust/cedar wood finishing notes
FLAVOR
clean and well defined, crisp berry personality and subtle chalky minerality, savory sweetness and spicebox complexity
 

Drink now through 2018.

With the cooler growing season of 2010, the delayed harvest allowed longer hang times, resulting in expressive fruit and the classic combination of viscosity and “nerve” (the French word for crisp natural fruit acidity). After three years of drought conditions, the El Nino weather pattern returned effectively raising the Pacific Ocean temperatures and promoting an uplift of moisture into the upper atmosphere. The 2010 harvest broke from the year’s proceeding drought riddled harvests with vineyards being graced with above average rainfall, approaching as much as 40 inches in parts.  The unique microclimate in the mountainous vineyards allowed for well-balanced and vibrant acidity for our Cabernet 2010 Vintage.  


This wine, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a cooler vintage, shows a classic linear tonality in its clean and well defined, crisp berry personality and subtle chalky minerality.  The flavors are more of the blue and red side of the fruit spectrum, with aromatic nuances of crystallized violets.  With aeration the young wine reveals more of its blueberry pie ripeness and graham cracker crust/cedar wood finishing notes.  While the wine is enjoyable now for its sheer freshness and purity, it will reward cellaring (through 2018), as it makes a turn toward more savory sweetness and spicebox complexity.
