2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cyrus Ryan Vineyard Napa Valley -- $95
With its deep purple core this wine is immediately bursting with blackberry and blueberry tart. Sweet vanilla spice and cinnamon toast are balanced by the subtle graphite and crushed floral elements. This is an extremely lush wine with cherry compote and milk chocolate on the mid palette. The moderately chalky tannins are balanced by the restrained acidity. Although surprisingly appealing in its youth, this wine will benefit from 10-11 years of bottle age (2022-2023).
