On the nose, the wine shows bright berry fruit, cocoa spice, with a slight black and green tea character. In the mouth are the classic Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon flavors of juicy blackberry, blueberry, and dark chocolate with a layer of toasted oak.
2010 was one of the coolest summers and ripening seasons in over 20 years for California. Fortunately, Mother Nature did her magic and delivered a well-balanced crop. If you appreciate elegance, well-defined varietal character and ebullient fruit, you are in luck, 2010 was a perfect year!
