Newton Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon reveals layers of richness and a complex structure. The grapes are hand-picked from ideal vineyard blocks on Spring Mountain, which is recognized as one of the premier locations for growing Bordeaux varietals.
"The 2010 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 7% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec) possesses copious amounts of black currants, licorice and cedar in its full-bodied, well-delineated, spicy, distinctive style. Layered, rich and young, it should age nicely for 15-20 years."
The Wine Advocate
"A classy style, showing measured density and restraint, with a tight mix of loamy earth, dark berry, mocha, cedar and dried herb, finishing with a dry, cleansing aftertaste."
