96 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2010

($225) Bright medium ruby. Strongly mineral aromas of black raspberry, cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and menthol, plus a whiff of Rutherford dust. Then silky, sexy and concentrated, with compelling inner-mouth perfume to the red and black fruit flavors complicated by loam and minerals. Very light on its feet. There's an essentially gentle character to this wine but also sneaky intensity, excellent grip and a serious spine for aging. The very rich, mineral-driven finish offers substantial but utterly sweet tannins and lovely lingering perfume. There's very little raisining at this site in Rutherford as the fairly rich soils have good moisture-holding capacity and the hills to the west block the late-afternoon sun. A beauty now, but it would be a shame not to give this some time to blossom in the bottle.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
