2010 Vineyard 7&8 Seven
The 2010 “7” Cabernet
Sauvignon is sourced from a few select private growers on Spring Mountain, as
well as younger Estate fruit.
This wine displays a
complex bouquet of red cherry, cocoa, and framboise, intermixed with hints of
tobacco, cocoa and graphite. A beautiful mid-palate rounds out a fleshy and
concentrated wine, followed by youthful, fine-grained silky tannins. This
fantastic wine is already approachable now and will age beautifully over the
next decade and more.
“The 2010 Cabernet
Sauvignon 7 offers up freshly cut flowers, mint, licorice, spices and violet.
The 7 is more laid back than the Estate, with less underlying structure but
more near-term appeal. Graphite, violets, dark cherries and menthol are some of
the many notes that flesh out in a Cabernet Sauvignon that is relatively
approachable for the year. Hints of smoke, licorice and incense flow through to
the detailed, nuanced finish. This is a great showing. Anticipated maturity:
2016-2028.” – 92 Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
