Wine Advocate | Rating: 96Freshly cut flowers, violets, mocha, espresso and blackberries all jump from the glass as the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its compelling personality. The aromas and flavors are beautifully delineated from start to finish. The 2010 adds an element of cool, mineral-drenched precision to the trademark sumptuous fruit. This is a great vintage for Promise's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. I can't wait to taste the 2010 once it is in bottle! Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.Author: Antonio Galloni
