    At the top of heap, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Big Papa - Old Block is all Cabernet and spent 20 months in 80% new French oak. Incredibly rich, layered and pure, it boasts first-rate aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, toasted bread, coffee bean and mint as well as a full-bodied, elegant and thrillingly textured mouthfeel. The quality of tannin here is superb and while already approachable, this beauty will continue to shine for another 10-12 years. Drink now-2025.

    (from older vines; aged in 80% new oak): Good bright, full ruby. Highly nuanced nose combines black raspberry, mocha, cedar and baking spices. Then silky, plush and sweet in the mouth, with blackberry and licorice flavors sexed up by Hermitage and Taransaud barrels. The rising, spicy finish features substantial but sweet tannins and suggestions of mocha and red berry liqueur.
