2010 Futo "OV" Oakville Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1154725 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Full ruby to the rim. Slightly high-toned scents of dark berries, licorice and bitter chocolate. Plush, savory and rich on entry, then powerful, chocolatey and concentrated in the middle palate, with flavors of black raspberry, licorice and roasted coffee complemented by sexy barrel notes. Not a restrained style of 2010 but really spreads out to saturate the palate. Huge, broad tannins are utterly melded into the wine's dark fruit. This large-scaled wine finishes with lovely floral, graphite lift. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 OV boasts a serious core of fruit backed up by firm, imposing tannins. Graphite, incense and crushed rocks come to life in the glass. The 2010 is a structured, intense wine that is going to need another few years in the cellar. Far from an easygoing ‘second’ wine, the 2010 is stacked and packed. A deep, mineral-drenched finish laced with exotic floral notes rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Weaves together a complex mix of dark berry, mocha-laced oak, cedar and black licorice flavors, appropriately firm and tannic and most interesting on the finish, where the flavors glide along. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2022. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

K&L Notes

94 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "Dark berries, raspberry jam, flowers, graphite and mint all flesh out in an inviting, textured wine loaded with class and pedigree. A sumptuous, layered wine, the 2010 impresses for its overall balance and poise. Futo's OV would best most top labels in Napa Valley. It is that good. Quite simply, this is a drop-dead gorgeous wine from Tom Futo and his team." (11/2013)
