Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Washington 2010
The long, late growing season produced deeper, darker fruit than in past vintages. In the glass, the classic ruby color we love is joined by a hint of purple. The nose exhibits the high-toned floral notes we have made a hallmark while also showing plum, maraschino cherry, vanilla and Asian spice notes. On the palate the wine exhibits the balance we continue to strive for; nicely integrated tannins, crisp acidity and beautiful Walla Walla Valley fruit. The bright red fruit is married nicely this year with some darker fruit flavors. The finish lasts and lasts. This is a wine that will reward with some bottle age but, if you must dive in, please decant for a couple of hours to allow it to really shine. Makers Notes
External Reviews for Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Washington
Our 2010 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant, elegant expression of this classic appellation from a cooler vintage. It has a deep garnet color and an enticing nose of cassis liqueur, blueberry coulis, tobacco, tarragon and roasting coffee. The seamless palate starts with a berry-laden attack, follows with a full-bodied mid-palate, and ends with a long, savory finish with fine grained, well integrated tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2031. - Winery Alcohol: 13.9%
Because Silver Oak only produces Cabernet Sauvignon from California's two best Cabernet microclimates, their wines are consistently outstanding and complex, brimming with ripe cassis flavors, carefully seasoned with toasty new oak. Because of their long relationships with growers they are able to source the best possible fruit from prime vineyards throughout Alexander Valley. They make this wine with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and they age it in 100% American oak barrels, 50% new for 24 months. The Silver Oak signature of course is then aging the wine in bottle for a full 15 months before release, giving the time it needs to round out and come together, so when you pull the cork you can enjoy the full experience. This 2010 Alexander Valley bottling is full-bodied and ultra-ripe and may be one of their best ever. Supple, elegant and densely flavored. with ripe berry and dark cocoa nuances. Don't miss it.

87% cabernet sauvignon and the balance merlot aged in two-thirds new French oak for twenty months. Inky core to a hazy purple rim. The nose is reticent at this stage with hints of juicy black cherry and chocolate. On the palate it is very rich and seamless but retains piercing acidity that helps the whole thing stay vibrant. Very rewarding and enjoyable now this has a finish that won't quit. It just needs some time in the cellar to get all the parts together. Revisit in 2015 and enjoy for the following decade or more. Ryan Moses.
Bright ruby-red. Vibrant nose offers cassis, blackberry, Baker’s chocolate, minerals, violet and licorice. Polished on entry, then juicy and intense in the middle, offering pristine dark berry and spice flavors framed by penetrating acidity. Higher-pitched than the 2009; lovely cooler-year definition and energy here. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and sneaky persistence. Potentially the best release yet from Doubleback, and balanced to age.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot that spent 20 months in 67% new French oak. Classic Cabernet on the nose, with gorgeous creme de cassis, raspberry ganache, lead pencil shavings and hints of flowers, it is rich, concentrated and decadent on the palate, yet has brilliant purity, a weightless, elegant texture and knockout polish to its tannin. Already approachable due to its balance and overall seamlessness, this full-bodied effort can be consumed now and over the coming 10–15 years. 2,000 cases made. Drink now–2025+.
