2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
98 Degrees of Awesome
Today’s Wharton Wines 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an under the radar wine that deserves your attention. It certainly got ours.
This classically-styled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a truly elegant, boldly delicious and smoothly silky wine that is showing beautifully now. What makes this youthful wine even more exciting is the fact that it will only continue to improve with age. We can’t wait to try a bottle every few years - for the next decade or longer.
If you are looking for an impressive Napa Cab that drinks like its $50+ Napa brethren, this very highly recommended wine is sure to delight you.
Remember, the 2010 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon vintage earned a record-shattering 98 points from Wine Spectator. 2010 is a vintage to stock up on.
A beautiful red ruby rim, with just a hint of rust, encircles a deep, foreboding crimson at its heart.
Well balanced and aromatic, with black cherry, dark plum, and black currant laid overtop leather, tobacco, espresso bean, eucalyptus, black pepper, and clove.
Luxurious and soft, with a touch of lovely spice. Deep dark fruit notes of sweet plum, blackberry, and black cherry mingle with saddle leather, sweet tobacco leaf, freshly tilled vegetable garden, clove, black peppercorn, espresso bean, and a touch of fresh mint.
A beautifully balanced wine, well structured with plenty of velvety tannins. The dark fruit note lingers, leaving you with a touch of spice at the tip of your palate.
Beef short ribs, braised in a full-bodied red wine with carrots, pearl onions, and sprigs of fresh thyme.
