Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2010 vintage is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot for palate softness and complexity of aromas. The various grape lots were picked based on optimum maturity and fermented separately to assess each vineyard block for quality and viticultural practices. The color is a vibrant garnet, aromas of ripe black cherry fruit and sweet vanilla oak are all combined with mature tannins and good acidity to make this a great accompaniment to many cuisines. This wine has a long future, but can be enjoyed today.

Varietal Make-Up: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot
Oak Aging: 24 months in 50% new French Oak from Treuil cooperage. The wine is unfined and lightly filtered.
Harvest: Early October 2010
Brix: 24.8 Acidity: 0.68 pH: 3.70

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Made with 16% Merlot to soften it, this is an unctuous, fully satisfying wine, restrained and complex, grown on the family’s Chiles Valley estate. It opens with ripe red berry and currant as well as a suggestion of vanilla, the oak providing structure and texture. Enjoy through 2025." - Virginie Boone (2/1/2015)

92 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A beautiful bouquet of blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with floral undertones jumps from the glass of the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure and nicely textured, this strong effort possesses lots of character and richness. The finish is reassuringly long. Enjoy it over the next 10+ years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2013)

89+ Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(includes some merlot and cabernet franc; these wines are from the Chiles Valley District AVA but that is only noted on the back label): Bright, dark red. Pure but withdrawn aromas of cassis, blueberry, licorice and tobacco leaf are lifted by floral and minty high notes. Juicy, tightly coiled and high-pitched, offering noteworthy intensity and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of cassis, blackberry, mint and licorice. Finishes with a firm spine of tannins that will need a good five years of patience. (I found the tannins of the 2009 version to be considerably drier.)" - Stephen Tanzer (May 2014)
