2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

 
Consensus: Drinking at what we think is its prime.
Les Garagistes Cabernet Sauvignon
  • VINEYARD:
    Elephant Mountain Vineyard
  • pH AT BOTTLING: 3.55
  • ALCOHOL: 15%
  • [From KB's Bordeaux tasting] Really kind of beautiful. Nice balance. Not overwhelming, or too big; medium weight and quite lovely and pure. Should be drinking great in 2018, but perfectly fine now with a little air.
  • Still a little tight, but finally starting to open up. Tastes young, despite its age – fresh and great fruit, but definitely some good tannins backing it up. Maybe try in 2018?
  • Tannic and empty. Pretty fresh in the nose, but really hard and tannic, and just short of drying tannins
