This was smoky and rocky with intense black spice and black fruit tones. Still decidedly youthful and powerful with layers of rich, sweet fruits and slow to emerge sweet, creamy cappuccino oak notes. In the mouth this remains youthful, big, rich and well balanced. The fruits are intense and meaty with a long menthol top note that leads to the finish which is probably the weakest point of the wine as it is a touch short. It's touch to follow up all that rich fruit. Still this is about as good a modern California Cab as one could hope for and it has some serious potential for improvement. 2009-2020 92pts

    Fruit forward and concentrated, but just enough hit of earth to stop it from being too syrupy sweet and overly big. Dark cherries, cassis, a bit of dark chocolate, mossy notes. A great sipper on its own and lots of pairing potential.

    his wine was rich and inviting on the nose hinting at dark fruits and forest floor. Showed a glimmer of green pepper but in a subtle and attractive way. Full bodied with intense currant and sweet plum fruit. Great balance and a pleasure to drink. Ended with a medium finish reminiscent of the dark fruits with a bit of licorice.

    90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 4% Petite Verdot Nose has elements of spice, caramel. Flavors indicate a lot of oak. Long finish, great balance, strong tannins. I feel like it needs a year or two to really show.

    Lovely scents of butter, oak, spice, and berries. Dry with a bit of cedar. Spice finish.

    Deep, dark ruby red color. Nose is moody and dark with blue fruit, vanilla barrel, forest funk and dusty mocha... yum. On the palate, black current, raisin, licorice and with a rich, sweet mid-palate. Cherry liquor on the long finish. A really great wine that always pleases.

    This bottle opened up with aromas of plum, raisin and chocolate. With time hints of sea air, chalk dust and undergrowth came forward, which added a great deal to its complexity. On the palate, I found black currants and cinnamon with a hint of green bell pepper, which led to a long rich dark chocolate covered cherry finish.

    A rich bouquet of cinnamon, licorice, and caramel followed by layers of cherry, currant and sweet tannin.

    Bright ruby-red. Aroma of cassis, mocha and Cuban cigar tobacco. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with currant and black cherry fruit flavors complicated by tobacco, herbs and spicy oak. Quite suave in the middle. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and excellent length. A very successful vintage for this bottling.

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful. Scents of pain grille, mocha, black currants, spices and plums emerge from this deep, resonant wine. The 2010 possesses stunning textural depth and richness, not to mention phenomenal overall balance. Readers who want to get a sense of the 2010 vintage without spending a huge amount of money may want to start here. This is a dazzling wine, especially within its price range. The 2010 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2025.

    Deep, bright ruby. Aromas of blackberry, crushed cassis and graphite. Juicy, spicy and fresh, with very good intensity and lift to the sweet dark berry and spice flavors. Primary, fruit-driven wine with a persistent, floral finish. Firmly tannic but nicely balanced from the start. A lovely vintage for this bottling.

    Expensive, yes, but it shows the drama and interest that a Joseph Phelps Cabernet predictably delivers. Itrsquo;s rich and ripe in blackberry, cherry, currant and oak flavors, with wonderful tannins and a dry finish. Best now.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, rich wine bursting with dark fruit. This is a fairly immediate style, some serious tannins notwithstanding. Smoke, tobacco and licorice develop in the glass, adding complexity and nuance. The powerful, fruit-driven finish is totally rewarding, but this will be even better in a few yearsrsquo; time. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2024.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is ultra-concentrated both in the nose and on the palate with aromas of blueberry, dark plum and Black Mission fig followed by cardamom, nutmeg, graphite, tobacco and vanilla bean. The sweet tannins are intertwined with flavors of anise, caramel cream, spicy black pepper and crushed blackberries, contributing to the long, lush finish.
