2010 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1115365 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Hard tannins make this wine difficult to approach now, as they usually do for young Duckhorn Cabs. But it's quite a success for the chilly 2010 vintage, showing lush blackberry and cherry fruits and fine acidity. As tough as the tannins are, they're well structured, a strong suggestion that the wine, which includes Merlot, should have an easy time aging. *Cellar Selection*  (5/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Well structured, with a charming core of currant, blackberry, cedar and spice. The tannins are firm and give the flavors traction on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (JL)  (11/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Sweet black currant fruit, graphite, background oak and earth are present in this medium-bodied, elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon. It should drink well for 7-8 years. Drink through 2021. (RP)  (10/2013)

K&L Notes

Estate fruit with some additional grapes from select Napa Valley growers comprise Duckhorn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Inclusion of 18% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc round out the profile of this wine which spent 16 months in 25% new French oak before being bottled. Winery note: "The 2010 vintage has delivered a beautifully fragrant wine with layered aromas of blackberry, cassis, cinnamon cake, anise, cardamom, tobacco leaf and mocha. On the palate, the entry is soft and smooth with blueberry and bittersweet chocolate flavors, as well as notes of red currant, cedar and sweet spice. The tannins are firm and youthful on the long finish, adding structure and the promise of a long life in the cellar."
