Out of the bottle, the 2010 vintage is dark as port. The nose is full of pure, blue and black fruit, hints of dust, pine needles and sweet forest floor. Cassis, baking spices, notes of cedar and caramel dominated until the end. Lay this wine down for decades if you wish or enjoy it now! The acid and tannins are in perfect balance, highlighting the elegance.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot
"Firm in texture, with a swarm of fine tannins wound around a plush core of black cherry, pomegranate and red pepper flavors that persist impressively on the extended, coffee-inflected finish. Needs time in the cellar to unfold."
"This is a heavy-duty Cabernet, big in every way, with rich black cherry and cassis fruit, and dense, dark tannins. The long, slightly grainy finish reinforces the impression of raw power, yet the wine retains perfect proportion and is nicely differentiated from the other 2010s crafted by winemaker Chris Figgins. Cellar Selection."
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot that spent 20 months in 67% new French oak. Classic Cabernet on the nose, with gorgeous creme de cassis, raspberry ganache, lead pencil shavings and hints of flowers, it is rich, concentrated and decadent on the palate, yet has brilliant purity, a weightless, elegant texture and knockout polish to its tannin. Already approachable due to its balance and overall seamlessness, this full-bodied effort can be consumed now and over the coming 10-15 years. 2,000 cases made. Drink now-2025+."
"Bright ruby-red. Vibrant nose offers cassis, blackberry, Baker's chocolate, minerals, violet and licorice. Polished on entry, then juicy and intense in the middle, offering pristine dark berry and spice flavors framed by penetrating acidity. Higher-pitched than the 2009; lovely cooler-year definition and energy here. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and sneaky persistence. Potentially the best release yet from Doubleback, and balanced to age.
