Cabernet Sauvignon, 'Mountain' 2010

32 Winds Wines

The wine displays notes of wild blackberries and blueberries, crème de cassis, licorice, nutmeg and cocoa with wonderful grippy, fine-grained tannins. This 2010 Cabernet is made from a historic single vineyard atop Diamond Mountain in northern Napa Valley. The vineyard is over 30 years old and consequently does not produce a high volume of fruit; instead the lower yielding vines produce much more concentrated, powerful intense fruit, exactly what you need for a great Cabernet.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Firm, with chewy tannins, this delivers a dense, rustic mix of crushed rock and dark and red berry, gaining depth and fanning out on the finish where the flavors become more nuanced and detailed. Needs time. Best from 2015 through 2025." (Wine Spectator)
