Black fruit that's a little inky, violet dominates the slightly herbal nose which shows a little licorice with hints of red fruit but big grilled meat and black pepper top notes. This is lightly tight on entry with early milky chocolate notes followed by bright, fine grained tannins, mineral notes, smoking wood notes and jammy blackberry fruit. There's nice tension on the palate, some pleasant fruit layered over a rather tightly knit structure,. This is still a touch short on the finish but the lean, rugged feel here, showing fat, power and finesse bodes well for positive development in the bottle. 92pts

Bluish-purple in the glass. Very much a viney nose. Very pleasant on the tongue. Some blackberry/blueberry fruit flavors. Sturdy tannin, but not like many others (e.g., Spring Mountain AVA). US$44.99 at Total Wine in 2013.

A bit less giving today than the nose suggests but nicely sweet and sharply delineated. The firmly tannic, lively finish is a bit youthfully tough and in need of patience, but this cabernet offers outstanding potential. - Stephen Tanzer 92+ Points The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a dark, mysterious beauty endowed with considerable depth and richness. Mocha, chocolate, spices and plums fuse together gracefully as this soft, supple wine takes shape in the glass. I very much like the immediacy of the 2010. Only a little bit of persistence is missing on the finish, but not enough to materially detract from what is a gorgeous bottle of wine. For Napa Valley standards, this is about as good as it gets for the money. The blend...
