90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

Cool, soil-driven aromas and flavors of blue fruits, licorice and underbrush struck me as quite claret-like.  At once glyceral and fresh, offering lovely depth and sweetness in the middle, with bright tannins giving the wine more obvious focus than the 2009 release.  Shows a distinct ferrous quality.  Finishes with building ripe tannins.  This should age very well.  In comparison to the 2009s, the estate's 2010 cabernets are more acid- than tannin-driven, according to winemaker Brown.

Since purchasing this wine it became available at Costco and I have added to my collection.

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...
