ALTVS 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (91pts)
The nose is packed with black currant, black plum, and plum blossom aromas which are backed up by toast, smoky oak. It’s both fresh and brooding, and beautifully projects the character of Coombsville fruit in a cool vintage.
“Lush ripe plum, licorice and toasty oak form a triangle of flavor in this blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The tannins are undoubtedly present yet soft. Much of the fruit comes from cool Coombsville, with a slight floral characteristic popping up from the midpalate through to the finish.” - 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
