Rich, ripe and juicy, the 2010 Oroppas is driven by classic aromas of plum, quince, black cherry and black currant, and accented with inviting dark chocolate and cinnamon notes. The palate generously showcases a concentrated and elegant structure with flavors of fresh blackberry and sweet mocha. This vintage displays the
signature Oroppas characteristics with an intense fruit core, smooth tannins and balanced acidity.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
"Tight and Bordeaux-like in its structure and midpalate austerity, offering loamy earth, currant and dark berry flavors shaded by anise and cedar details. Needs time."
"The estate’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Oroppas wraps around the palate with lovely fleshiness. Layers of radiant fruit caress the palate in this rich, textured wine. Today the fruit is vibrant, supple and totally beautiful. The Oroppas is a pretty wine, but it falls short of being truly exciting. The 2010 is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
