The 2010 GOTT 10 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has complex aromas of blackberries, black cherries, mocha and dried flowers. The flavors are elegant with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. The wine opens with dark, concentrated fruit on the palate, velvety tannins on the mid-palate, followed by a long and silky finish.
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Gott 10 impresses for its focus and cut. There is beautiful delineation in the aromas and flavors. Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, smoke and melted road tar are all layered into the precise, yet powerful finish. This isn’t as generous as many other 2010s, but it is quite beautiful just the same as it continued to open up and flesh out with time in the glass. The 2010 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. "
The Wine Advocate
Big & Bold
Big, dark purple-red color, full bodied. The nose starts out on the medium-small side but grows with air and time. Lovely varietal character with boysenberry and oak primary aromas and secondary notes of cedar, leather, cassis. Big, mouth-filling flavors; fruit, acid and tannin to spare, a slight hint of bitterness in the finish which is more of an asset to the complexity than a liability. There is too much alcohol in both the nose and flavors for me right out of the bottle but and hour or two after opening this is not so prominent and the nose is coming on nicely. It will reward patience, I'd recommend drinking it from about 2018 on and for many years thereafter.
