(a Bordeaux blend based on 61% cabernet sauvignon): Good deep red-ruby. Captivating aromas of plum, kirsch , tobacco, pepper and cinnamon reminded me a bit of a Pomerol. Then quite dry and austere on the palate, in a distinctly Old World style. The musky flavors of plum, spices and dusty minerals are lifted by a lavender nuance. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins that will require patience. Already shows a tangy quality but this is very shut down today. Capture's estate vineyard is located at an altitude of nearly 2,500 feet, in Alexander Valley. All three of its red wines were from fruit harvested on November 2, 4 and 9 in 2010.Author: Stephen Tanzer
