2010 Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum
Blackberry, black currant and black cherry, deep and layered with baker’s chocolate, tar, toast, clove and espresso. The intensity of flavors effortlessly unifies the palate, joined by mouth-coating tannins that support and lift the long finish. “When experiencing this wine, it reminds me of stepping into a dark, wood-paneled library that envelopes your senses with its presence.
With cooler weather in 2010, harvest was later than average. Fruit hung on the vine well into late October, developing incredible color, structure and fruit maturity. To build texture and layers, we chose multiple vessels for fermentation and aging, including stainless steel tanks, one-ton fermentors and oak barrels. This allowed us to tailor our winemaking and draw forward each lot’s expressive individuality.
