Girard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of pipe tobacco, ripe Bing cherry and wild marionberry appear on the nose with hints of soft and elegant baking spices. The palate expresses dark fruit infused with pomegranate, toasted oak and mocha. The finish lingers with satisfying flavors of graham cracker, plum and well-integrated tannins.

The narrow, winding road up Sage Canyon leads a traveler to one of Napa Valley's best kept secrets: Pritchard Hill, where mountain wineries such as Bryant Family, Colgin and Chappellet have carved a niche into the steep slopes. It's here that you will find the vineyards from which Girard's 93-point Cabernet was born. Girard was founded 35 years ago at the dawn of New Age winemaking in California. Since its inception, Girard Winery's quest has remained unchanged: to seek out world-class vineyards and produce from them, wines that in every way possible, reflect the breathtakingly rare terroir in which the grapes were grown. On hillsides high above Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. And Girard winemaker Marco DiGiulio lets terroir - or the vineyard - determine his choice of varietals. It's no wonder Girard's Cabernet ripens well on the rugged terrain of Napa's mountain appellations, with views that stretch clear across the valley. At lower altitudes, richer soils are more suitable to growing white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc and red grapes like Merlot. As a result, Girard has dedicated much of its valley floor acreage to these varietals. Additionally, the winery sources a small amount of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from individual growers in other parts of the valley. The Chardonnay in the winery's portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonoma's upscale Russian River Valley. For more than three decades, Girard has celebrated its sense of place in the California wine country. With the right grapes from the right locations, this Napa Valley winery offers a line-up that features both power and finesse - the hallmark of great California wine.

Nice pleasant Cabernet. A bit of a mouth watering quality on the finish. Nice nose and good structure. Cheers!

Big hearty wine. Great currant aromas followed by long fruity flavors. Not overly tannic. Would buy more if I find on sale. On the second night I noticed more cherry flavor, and the oak seemed more pronounced. The Wine Cabinet November 2013.

Girard offers a great wine at numerous price points. The cab is flavorful and inviting with limited bite.

Thirty years after first planting its vineyards, Girard continues to produce wines reflecting the quality that has made Napa Valley the most famous New World wine-growing region in the world.

Our 2010 Artistry has aromas of toasted hazelnuts and festive Christmas spices. Boysenberries and currants saturate the palate aside flavors of exotic bing cherries. Well-structured tannins round out this vintage with a beautiful, tobacco and spice finish
