Sipping Fine Wine

My last 2010 bottle, dark inky purple, with blue and black fruit aromas. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot & 1% Malbec, aged in French oak for almost 2 years. The palate shows complex blackberry & blueberry flavors with sweet spice, not jammy, but little tired now. Well balanced with good acidity and fully developed tannins. This full-bodied wine finishes with a smooth ending. Great but lost its zing! Drink up!

Excellent wine. Probably one of the better cabs we've had recently. Very mellow but bold at the same time with good flavor.
