Our 2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Lookout Mountain ranch in Alexander Valley. Fog drifts over the tops of the coastal mountains and burns off quickly in the morning sunshine, resulting in a warm climate with almost full sun throughout the day - ideal conditions for our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Delicious with aromas and flavors of black tea, blackberry, clove, cedar and leather. With a viscous and full-bodied mid-palate, and structured, firm, gripping tannins, this wine has excellent depth and a finish that lingers with layers of fruit, spice and earthy elements. Food Pairings: Our Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued heavy game and red meats such as lamb, beef, pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample of the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve looks very promising. An exuberant, boisterous display of creme de cassis, licorice and new oak is followed by a seamlessly constructed, full-bodied, rich wine with loads of black fruits. The acidity provides freshness, the tannins are ripe and well-integrated, and the wood component is nearly concealed by the extravagant quantities of fruit. This winner should drink well for 15-20 years.

Wine EnthusiastAn impressive Cabernet, but one in need of cellaring. The primary fruit flavors of blackberries and blueberries are delicious, as is the fancy coating of smoky oak. And the tannins are rich and sweetly ripe. Give it until 2016 or 2017 to begin to integrate.
