A delightfully rich and graceful version, with much to admire. Brims with ripe dark berry, plum and black cherry fruit, revealing touches of dried herb, olive and cedar. Turns elegant and graceful on the finish, with fine-grained tannins and subtle earth notes. Drink now through 2025. - James Laube
The Epitome of a vintage - an ideal example or embodiment, created only in exceptional years.
In 2010, our winemaking
team was drawn to the fruit bestowed by block three of our Cornerstone Vineyard, set along the northeastern border of the renowned Stags Leap District. Unique in character and rare in number, we release this very special wine in celebration of our 35th anniversary.
Deep and concentrated, the 2010 Epitome Cabernet Sauvignon would
make an exquisite accompaniment to a number of beautiful meals, including braised
pork shoulder with seasonal vegetables or
pan-roasted duck breast with wild
mushroom risotto. This exclusive bottling would also pair well with aged Mahón, a hard,
flavorful cow’s milk cheese from Spain, for an unforgettable cheese course.
