Boxhead cabernetsauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Boxhead Winemakers

Bright purple. Fresh blackberry and cassis aromas are strikingly pure, with gentle baking spice and cracked pepper notes adding liveliness. Bright, energetic and juicy, with clean dark berry flavors, gentle acidity and light tannins. Finishes bright, with uncommon complexity and length for the price point.

Reviews

  • "87 points. A ripe, juicy red, this shows an underpinning of fine tannins to set off the dark berry and herb flavors. Drink now through 2014. 3,200 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
