Pure, rich and polished, this gorgeous wine is focused on a core of juicy blackberry, black licorice, loamy earth, spice and nutmeg, ending with firm, ripe, fine-grained tannins that are supple, showing a pleasing grip. Drink now through 2026.óJ.L.
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is another large- scaled wine. Smoke, tar, licorice and blackberries are some of the notes that flow from this super-intense, lay- ered Cabernet. Layers of espresso, mocha, graphite and crushed rocks contribute to the complexity and sheer personality of the finish. This is a very promising wine from Gemstone. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
