Deep aromas of violets and lilacs, with flavors of cassis and licorice, spiced with a soupçon of hay, candied orange peels and hint of nutmeg. With a magnificent frame of ripe, mouth-coating tannins, a great level of energy, firm body and textural elegance this terroir specific, very food-friendly, and well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon will reward cellaring and be long-lived. 430 cases produced.
Winemaker Denis Malbec Notes: “In 2010 wines produced from our estate are wines of precision and purity, full of character, well-balanced, reflecting the vintage’s long and cool growing season with moderate temperatures and extended ripening during the fall. 2010 was one of the coolest growing seasons I experienced in Napa, but remembering my years of winemaking at Chateau Latour, our vineyard crews did not excessively de-leaf during the summer, preventing crop damage due to sunburn and dehydration during the heat waves of August and September. As a result, we crafted very expressive and harmonious wines with a high level of refinement and ripe tannins.”
