2010 Sugarloaf Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

This wine has power and presence but also displays balanced structure, subtlety, and refinement. Aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, and cassis mingle with notes of cinnamon, allspice, violets, and toasted tobacco. Mouthwatering black and red cherries on the palate meet fine tannins, clean minerality, and acidity that sings with perfect pitch. This truly remarkable wine shows what unique Napa site expression and single origin fruit can become in the hands of a talented winemaker. It’s delicious now although should age beautifully for 15+ years.
