Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94(+?)

(14.8% alcohol; includes 15% cabernet franc, 8% petit verdot and 3% merlot): Bright, saturated ruby-red; much deeper than the 2011. Back raspberry, minerals, leather and a whiff of tar on the nose, all lifted by a suggestion of blood orange. Lush and sweet but wonderfully vibrant too, with superb ripeness and considerable power to the dark raspberry, licorice and leather flavors. Offers an uncanny combination of extract, verve and clarity of flavor. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and superb breadth, length and grip. Forman notes that cassis and violet elements will come out later. A great vintage for this wine and quite likely to merit an even higher score down the road.

Just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass with an exotic, beguiling melange of violets, cassis, spices and menthol. Layers of fruit supported by vivid, beautifully articulated tannins cover every inch of the palate. Rich and powerful, the 2010 never abandons its classic sense of structure. Today, the 2010 is a bit compact, but time should prove to be very beneficial in releasing the wine's true potential. There is absolutely nothing out of place in this majestic Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are virtually imperceptible, as is the new oak. The long growing season produced a wine that is among the finest of the vintage. This is an unforgettable wine from Ric Forman. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.

Pure and direct, this rich, potent mix of red and black fruit offers touches of currant, spice, dried herb, tobacco leaf, black licorice and cedar, ending with a pleasing road tar and loamy earth aftertaste, and tannins that caress and grip.

Leaner than the previous three vintages. Still has good red currant and tar. Long finish.

About This Producer


Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance." Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.
