2010 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley

2010 ushered in a second late growing season which played right into this vineyards wheel house.  Milder conditions coupled with well drained soils in this early ripening microclimate 2010 Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley of the valley produced a prodigious version of this wine that may even trump the heroic 2009 vintage.

Dark ruby red in the glass, aromas of light and dark fruits combined with violets, mocha, cardamom and a signature Kenefick Ranch spice envelope the senses.  The mid palate is saturated with a creamy texture that carries the above notes into a hedonistic wonderland without turning heavy.  Benefiting from the hang time achieved with this vintage, the finish is laced with perfectly ripened tannins and fruit that frame this wine and make it a perfectly complete yet compact Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  With some bottle age, additional complexities will emerge and add layers of subtle aromas and flavors that this wine is known for.

Drink now with a short decant or age 5-10 years so you can get acquainted with the greatness of this vineyard.  Our most stunning Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon to date.
