Broad and spicy, with a swarm of fine tannins wrapping around a core of spicy blueberry and plum fruit, picking up peppery notes as the finish lingers intently. Best from 2017 through 2020.H.S.

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Ciel (100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in 100% new French oak for 20 to 22 months) is still backward and tight, with slightly reticent aromas of graphite, black cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate and singed cedar flowing to a full-bodied, nicely concentrated and structured feel on the palate. Showing mostly structure and tannin at present, it needs 3-4 years in the cellar, and assuming it fleshes out, will have a long life ahead of it. Id like to see more mid-palate depth at this point, but its still a superb wine that will have 10-15 years of longevity even on the most conservative side.”,,,

Tasted from bottle, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Ciel is 100% Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. Full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, it possesses brilliantly rich aromas and flavors of smoked game, black currant, graphite, tobacco and crushed stone-like minerality. More concentrated, backwards and masculine than the 2011, it will require 3-4 years of cellaring and impress for upwards of two decade, minimum. Drink 2017-2030.
