The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon by Bonterra holds unique characteristics while still living up to your standard Cabernet benchmarks. Spicy and sweet notes of red currents, dark fruit and wild flowers on the nose with black current, oak, dark cherry, plum and hints of pepper on the palate. Great structure and acidity, medium-dry. Easy to drink now but cellar worthy through 2017. Made with 100% organic estate grown grapes.
This Cabernet offers aromas of bright cherry, currant, and raspberry with notes of toasted oak and vanilla. In the glass, you will and flavors of cherry and currant and a lingering and thoughtful finish. Good structure, a moderate weight, polished tannins and a balanced acidity promise an ever more pleasing wine to come.
Cabernet Sauvignon is known for creating wines of amazing density and complexity with both concentrated and nuanced flavors. In making Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon, I like to add to these layers of flavor by blending in small amounts of other red varietals to add color, texture, and a bit of spice. Varieties and vineyard lots are kept separate until the best lots are blended together to create the final wine. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon which will continue to evolve and remain enjoyable for quite some time.
