Aged beautifully. Tons of fruit, not too raisin like, delightful. Great job

I have to say, this cabernet really speaks volumes of the possibilities that are hiding in Washington wines. Bordeaux lovers would feel at home, and California fans, well strap in because this Cab is a whole different character. Extremely fragrant and even in a 2010 vintage in need of air, and VERY dark harboring plenty of unfiltered sediment lying at the bottom, with crushed violets and roses, sweet tobacco, figs, and cloves in a Spanish cedar cigar box. On the pallet, a whole bouquet of red currant and anise, blackberries, truffle, sweet dark cherries, and a firm, yet resolved tannin, finishing very smoothly, and still lingering. More earth and elegance and less richness and power, but drinking bordeaux like in its young age. I think that this is a very unique bottle, a hidden gem that will benefit in a cellar from a few years more. More concentration in this vintage than in the previous 2009 vintage, and equally as good.

I've always been "in like" with Gordon Estate, but never truly fell for their wines...until tonight.
The bouquet alone is worth the price of admission! Okay so here we go: Blackberries, red currants, cinnamon, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, dark chocolate, blueberries, anise, and hints of clove and vanilla. (Breathe.)
The flavors are full of ripe, fleshy red and blue fruits with hints of skin tang to keep it focused.
I'm picking nits when I critique a finish that I believe should be longer, but if Jeff Gordon told me to, "Shut up, and enjoy the show" I would.
I will remember the night I enjoyed this wine, and if you have the opportunity to try some by all means do it!!!

Had the 2008. Very nice. Light with a nice finish.
