The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is an 82,000-case cuvee made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. It reveals exuberant notes of red and black fruits intertwined with hints of underbrush, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and oak. Medium to full-bodied and rich, this well-made Cabernet is no shy wine at 14.75% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next 6–10 years.

Trim and restrained, with a narrow beam of currant, tobacco, cigar box and cedar. Well-made, focused and persistent. Drink now through 2020.
