Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of charcoal, white chocolate and creme de cassis, a full-bodied opulence, impeccable purity, decent acidity and ripe tannin that nicely frames the wine. This serious, rich Cabernet Sauvignon is as exceptional as one would expect from the winemaking genius of Michel Rolland
My Notes:
