Made with header boards keeping the cap submerged, and finishing fermentation in barrels. The colour is good, and the flavours are in the cassis heartland of cabernet, but the tannins are in an argumentative mood, and need to get out of the bottle on the right side - I think they will in a few years.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a youthfully muted nose of ripe red and blackcurrants, mulberries and black plums with hints of pencil shavings, violets and mint. The palate has tons of tight-knit fruit filling out the full-bodied frame along with firm, finely grained tannins and just enough acid to support. It finishes long. Drink it now to 2022+.

Round and distinctive, with a dark cast, weaving licorice and prune flavors through bright plum and earthy spice notes, lingering against crackling tannins. Shows presence, persistence and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020. 25 cases imported.
