The intense fruit in this Cabernet Sauvignon does not deter from the aromatics of chocolate cherry and slight mint, which precede a palate of cocoa and black cherry flavors. This is an elegant, complex wine that culminates in the perfect balance of wood and fruit on the lingering finish.
Wine Advocate 92 points - A step up, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot) is straight-up beautiful, with cassis, black raspberry, licorice, graphite and hints of chocolate all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, layered and pure, with a rocking texture and building tannin, enjoy it over the coming decade or more. (Jun 2014)
