0 points - The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a structured, tannic Cabernet built to last. Discrete notes of damp earth, black cherries and black currants are followed by a juicy attack and a medium-bodied, elegant, Bordeaux-like textural and flavor profile. Not a blockbuster, it is an elegant, finesse-styled effort to enjoy over the next decade.
