Donati Family Vineyard
2010 Ezio Cabernet Sauvignon
California: San Benito County: Paicines
Jeepers (yes, we just said ‘jeepers’), today’s wine is superb!
Neighboring the world-famous Chalone and Leal wineries, Donati Family Vineyard is a now a respected fixture of Central California’s Paicines AVA.
Named for Ezio Donati, the first Donati to be born in the New World, today’s Donati Family Vineyard 2010 Ezio Cabernet Sauvignon is the winery’s flagship wine. It is deep, delicious, complex and very highly recommended to our red blend-loving Operatives.
This is a remarkable wine that is built to last. We’ll be enjoying bottles through 2022 - and beyond!
Ultra dark with inky hues of darkest purple, through and through.
Big and aromatic, this bold wine exudes aromas of dark mixed berry compote, braised plum, spruce, violets, leather, boysenberry, black currant, white pepper and subtle tobacco leaf.
Boysenberry and black cherry compote sit atop lush flavors of blackberry, leather, sweet tobacco, lavender & violet tea, plum skin and cassis.
Ultra long and mouth watering, leading to a velvety and softly drying ending.
Enjoy this big wine with something equally exciting. We’re taking a flyer on this one and pairing it with a rosemary and lavender rubbed pot roast with whole garlic cloves and fingerling potatoes.
