Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2010-750ml


Default Title

96+pts-WA: The estate’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon literally bursts from the glass with juicy dark cherries, mint, spices, orange rind, tobacco and dried herbs. Like so many wines of the vintage, the 2010 is bright, focused and very tightly wound. It will require considerable patience, but is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. The 2010 brings together the fruit density and darkness of the 2008 with the textural refinement of the 2009, a pretty terrific combination in my book. The 2010 has shut down quite a bit since I first tasted it this spring, and is probably best left alone for at least another two years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.--Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate, 12/2012
