Two thousand ten saw one of the coolest growing seasons of the last 30 years. Chilly spring temperatures resulted in slight delays in bud break and bloom, but the weather didn’t affect fruit set or the maturation of clusters through the bloom stage. The consistently cool weather allowed the fruit a slow rate of sugar development and necessitated longer hangtime. This resulted in highly fragrant and flavorful grapes and, subsequently, a more elegant wine.
Our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers an alluring nose of dark cherries, blueberries, chocolate, tobacco and sweet toasted oak. Round upon entrance with a distinct note of cranberry, the wine is very consistent between aroma and taste, generously opening up on the mid-palate and persisting with long, luscious flavors on the finish. One hour of decanting is recommended. With structure and complexity, this rendition of Cabernet Sauvignon will be receptive to aging.
