2010 Profile is a dark, brooding wine with intense aromas of cassis, blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, smoke and cedar. It is very dense in the mouth with ripe, round tannins, and it finishes with lingering notes of black cherry, grilled herbs and violets. This wine must be decanted in its youth, and with proper cellaring it will age for 15-20 years and beyond.
Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot
"The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 Proprietary Red Profile (92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot) displays a glorious bouquet of sweet blueberry liqueur intermixed with cassis, acacia flowers and a touch of oak. Deep, licorice-infused cassis, white chocolate and espresso roast flavors emerge from this complex, full-bodied, opulent, fleshy 2010. Its length, sweet tannins and overall intensity of flavors suggest it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years."
The Wine Advocate
"A smooth, rich and seamless effort, with tannins building around a seductive mix of dark berry, currant, loamy earth and tobacco. Flexes tannic strength on the finish."
