(the estate's second wine; made from an older block in a hot spot that's at what consulting winemaker Thomas Brown describes as "a canopy disadvantage"): Good full medium ruby. Superripe nose hints at dried fruits, with a peppery nuance providing lift but also giving the impression of a wide range of fruit ripeness. Sweet, slightly high-toned red and black fruit flavors are complicated by notes of brown sugar and herbs. Plenty of structure provided by integrated acidity and ripe tannins. And not at all pruney on the palate in spite of the almost roasted nose. The sun-facing side of these vines is picked two weeks earlier than the more shaded side. According to Brown, the new plantings here are denser and provide better shade protection for the fruit.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon The Sisters is a hugely delicious wine. It shows fabulous intensity in its fruit. Dark flowers, spices, licorice and mint are some of the nuances that wrap around the textured finish. This is a fabulous showing, and a big step up from the 2009s.
