Mission Briefing


Left to your own Vices

What do you get when you combine some of the most sought-after Cabernet grapes from some of the most exclusive vineyard sources (Las Piedras, Dr. Crane, Stagecoach, Max and San Savino) in the world? Well, you get some very nice grapes. Add the winemaking wizardry of the legendary Paul Hobbs and Patrice Breton to the melange, and you end up with an extraordinary wine.

Today’s 2010 Le Petit Vice Cabernet Sauvignon is an incredibly wonderful, elegant and delightful wine! This wine is the best premium Cabernet Sauvignon that we have showcased this year.

This remarkable and delicious wine exudes elegance. With concentrated fruit on the palate, a lush nose and a plush mouthfeel, this is the sort of wine that one could take a very long time discussing while enjoying.

Decant for at least 30 minutes and you will be rewarded with a softer, more flavorful and more elegant experience.

Tasting Profile


Absolutely gorgeous, with rich garnet hues from the dark heart of the wine right out to the fine ring of ruby at the edge.


Bold, dark and elegant fruit of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, plum, cassis and sweet tobacco out in front. As the wine breathes, it opens to reveal follow-on aromas of cocoa and lavender.


Extraordinarily delicious and mouth coating, with flavors of blackberry, black cherry and cassis. As the wine opens, flavors soften - and new flavors of sweet tobacco, subtle cedar and sweet spice appear.


Very long with flavors that persist all over the mouth. When combined with a great meal or some fine confectioner’s chocolate, the finish seems even longer.


A fine dark chocolate is a delightful pairing, but for a real treat, enjoy this wine with lamb chops with an olive tapenade. The winery insider recommends truffled goat cheese and Toscana Salami.
