Curvature 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2010 was a classic vintage in Napa Valley. Warm days with no extreme heat spikes combined with cool nights to extend the ripening season well into october, allowing grapes to develop concentrated aromas while maintaining the acidity necessary to add freshness and life to the palate. The wine expresses lovely aromas of ripe blue fruit, plum, chocolate and graphite. On the palate it is round and rich, with an intensity that is both explosive and tempered. while expressing beautifully ripe flavors, the wine maintains a sense of balance and silkiness in its integrated tannins.
