2010 MacDonald Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1241874 97 points Vinous

 I can't help myself. Even though all of the wines in this tasting are well-established benchmarks for excellence, our primary mission with events and tastings is education, so I throw in one mystery wine that is tasted blind. MacDonald's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, from the famed to-Kalon vineyard in Oakville, turns out to be one of the wines of the night. Explosive and exuberant to the core, the 2010 hits the palate with waves of blue/purplish fruit, dark spices and French oak. The 2010 is of course far too young to deliver maximum pleasure, but it is simply stunning tonight. Most importantly, in this vintage, the first commercial release, brothers Alex and Graeme MacDonald made a wine that has no problem sitting alongside Napa Valley's long established stars. This is a fabulous showing. (AG)  (6/2015)

K&L Notes

The MacDonald brothers make Cabernet Sauvignon from their family's vineyard, replanted in the 1950s and 1970s, which is part of the historic To Kalon vineyard (but for complex legal reasons cannot be called that).
