2010 was an utterly spectacular vintage for Bordeaux, especially in the Medoc. The nose on this charmer opens with notes of ripe red and black cherry, black raspberry, and black plum framed by accents of rose petal, tobacco leaf, leather, tar, and a hint of dried herbs. Medium in body with fine focus and balance, it is already in its drinking window, though it should continue to evolve well over the next 5-6 years. It positively begs for wintery roasts and stews and will also play well with duck, steak, and even backyard barbecue fare come Spring/Summer. This is a fantastic way to get your hands on some quality 2010 without breaking the bank. Superb value buy.

This is surprisingly approachable for the vintage and filled with warm, jammy fruit, notions of earth and a clean finish. Flavors and aromas of black cherry, dark plum, tobacco and even a hint of tree bark are present in the jam packed middle. This over delivers at a great price.

Classic Bordeaux from a classic vintage! It's time to start opening up those 2010s, widely touted as perhaps the "Vintage of the Century," and what better place to start than with this delicious Medoc blend from a winery we've had great success with in past vintages. Beautiful dense aromas of cherry, cigar box, plums, black raspberries, leather and savory herbs. Wonderful balance and structure, and just now entering its drinking window. The perfect wine to buy a case of and enjoy from time to time over the next few years.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
