Description | Details | Rating

Napa Valley's 2010 growing season was dramatic, but resulted in excellent quality fruit with great flavor concentration. It began cool and wet, and by early summer winemakers knew harvest would be later than normal. The early vine development was slowed down by a cool summer and then sped up by bursts of heat throughout the valley in August. Vineyard management was vital in this vintage, and harvest was accomplished not by one picking but by numerous to be sure that the grapes were properly ripened. This harvest had its share of unexpected challenges as most typically do, but the reduced crop resulted in vines yielding berries that showed great expression of their vineyards and rich, concentrated flavors.

"Sourced from high atop Michael Mondavi's Atlas Peak vineyards, this is feral and intense in black currant liqueur and leather, the mountain tannins up front and fierce. Cellaring until 20142019 will do further wonders for this wine."" The 2010 vintage blend is 83% Cabernet and 17% Petit Verdot, aged for 20 months in 87% new French Oak, is deep and luscious, a modern, fruitdriven cabernet which retains a genuine, builetolast mountain of character."
