2010 is drinking quite beautifully even at this adolescent stage. Dark fruits and grippy tannins. Decent acidity provides good balance. Finish lingers for minutes with that classic "Rutherford dust". Best paired with a well marbled ribeye.

I really want to try this 2011 again a year or two down the road... It was good, but seemed edgy/tight.

Elegant, balanced Napa Cab. Really lovely even at this young stage.
