Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

 

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon presents vibrant notes of crushed blackcurrant and blackberries with hints of moss covered bark, cloves and pencil lead plus a whiff of dried plums. Full bodied, it fills the mouth with taut blackcurrant fruit supported by firm grainy tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long and a little earthy. Approachable now, it should drink to 2016+.
