A bit past its prime. Would have been a 94 2 years ago.

Ya know, it's good. It's damn good. But when you put it up against the 2008, it falters just a bit. It's still super tight if you can believe that. Cellar for another 5 years at least....And then invite me over.

YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE. Blueberries, pie, tobacco, cedar, blueberries and MOAR BLUEBERRIES. Complexity. And still young! Buy a metric shit-ton of this and drink now but also compare it to itself as it ages over the next 15-20 years. A serious gem of a vintage.

Out of all the Cabs we tried today, not my favorite. Kinda holding back. And it doesn't have a lot going on. I wouldn't complain if someone put it in my glass, but knowing CA Cabs and their potential, I wouldn't seek it out. 2010 wasn't a great year out here though, so.....work with what you got.

Upon opening wine was tight. Alcohol was present on the nose and the finish. Not much dimension at all. But after 6-7 hour decant...HELLO. This baby turned to butter. Smooth, velvety, rich mouth feel, decadent. Great nose of Blueberry pie, mocha, espresso, cola, and spices. Very full bodied. Wine was almost black colored in the glass. This was truly wonderful with the proper decant. If you pop and pour this its not worth opening. This needs the proper time to be fully rewarded.

Opened a second bottle and gave it 20 minutes and it simply couldn't follow the first. You would have thought they were 2 different wines.

Dinner at the house, cooked Goose for the first time. Raspberry/Jalapeno Sauce, Lobster Mac & Cheese and roasted root veggies.
We’ve always found this winery to be pretty consistent and a great fall back if you’re looking for a crowd pleaser. The wines (04 – 06) all straight from bottle – pull cork & pour - are drinking very well. Mellow, but still good presence of tannins to keep the fruit from getting out of hand. Soft finish, dry but not parching. Colors were still deep for 05 & 06, while 04 has developed some onion skin I have another 04 that’ll be gone soon, as for 05 & 06 I think there’s still some decent bottle time. So drink up, but don’t be in a hurry

Great old CS. Heavy body, light menthol with dark fruit nose, with a little oak. Still fairly balanced.

Murky garnet-age showing
Leather, musky, stewed plums
More of a Merlot. Super smooth. No tannins, fruit dissipating
Medium(-) finish, faint notes of dark plums and blackberries
Flat and underwhelming

A shame this bottle was opened so late in its life. A year earlier and I am sure it would have been drinking perfectly.

Drink your wine in time!!!!

At the winery, drank next to a 2012 Estate Cab. Big dark fruit nose of black cherry and herbs. Palate repeats with black currants, cassis, tobacco, red cherry...

The extra age next to the 12 was evident, elegant and refined, tannins starting to intgrate. Drinking well now, should have 10+years ahead of it. Worthy to cellar, will likely mellow, hard to say if it will improve much

Nice color, still had some weight and fruit, some sediment. Opened right away, nice nose, soft and went down easy.

We got a pizza stone and got a little carried away. Couldn't wait to use it so we mixed up some pizza dough. That took a lot longer than we thought. But we ended up with a nice bottle of cab with a strange pizza made with Smoked Duck, Roasted Brussell Sprouts, Caramelized Onion & Gouda Cheese.

This wine is drinking beautifully here and now. Clearly the tannic structure is still strong but now more of a backbone than the full body. The body has rounded out, less fruit but with amazing depth of earth, loam, some wet leaves and just a touch of camphor, very slight. The nose is dominated by pepper and fruit. The finish is gorgeous and lasts so long that our bottle went on for over two hours, as this wine demanded small sips to enjoy the lingering finish. I only bought 3. I wish I bought a case!

(Tasted at the winery) Cedar notes in the bouquet and on the palate with nicely integrated tannins. A pleasant and correctly made wine. Just not very exciting, especially at this price point.

A good cab sav but overpowered and cranked up with a candied overtone, needs time to settle so perhaps one to cellar.

Not decanted. The wine has a ruby core and garnet color rim in the glass, showing a bit less age than would be expected. The bouquet is rather intoxicating and mature - dusty black cherry, red cherry and currant, along with leathery notes of cedar and crushed pine. The palate adds more earthy flavors and muted fruit. The acidity is medium high, and works well with the fully integrated tannins. Complex and relatively long finish. Excellent wine drinking very well right now - likely at peak. (Note: this bottle was purchased at the winery and aged in their cellars.)
