Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is much more polished than the 2009 tasted alongside it. Asphalt, smoke, tobacco, licorice and tar all flow as this sumptuous Cabernet shows off its sexy, undeniably appealing personality. Hints of mocha and espresso add a resonant warmth that is hugely attractive. The tannins are firm but seamlessly balanced. There is a lot to like in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, starting with the wine's sheer class. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.

Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 90
This 79% Cabernet Sauvignon is firm in tannins, with a thickly tangled web of herb and savory leather amid cassis and currant. With smaller percentages of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, in that order, it's midweight, dry and could stand more time in the bottle. Try after 2018.

Wine Tasting Notes
Layered and finely grained tannins create a dense, tightly knit structure and backbone that provides remarkable depth, concentration and purity. Aromas of black cherry, clove, nutmeg, and blackberry are followed by subtle notes of red plum, cassis and vanilla on the palate. The persistent and elegant finish exhibits hints of cocoa, dark fruit and a lingering minerality.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot
