Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Chris Carpenter has done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cardinale. The wine boasts a huge center of fruit backed up by equally firm, imposing tannins. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha, cinnamon and new leather explode from the glass. The 2010 is a huge Cardinale endowed with superb depth, power and richness. At the same time, there is a mid-palate generosity and pliancy that leads me to believe the 2010 will drink beautifully once the tannins soften a touch. Hints of tar, graphite and iron add personality on the full-bodied, intense finish.
The 2010 Cardinale is an intriguing combination of dark fruits and spices. Blending five Napa mountain appellations, it opens with the scents of ripe boysenberry, dark cherry, and dragonfruit. On the palate, these fruits meld with holiday spice and Sumatra coffee bean flavors. The wine has a lush mid-body texture and a lingering finish.
86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot

Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
One of the most allocated and collectible Cabernets in the world, Caymus Vineyards Special Selection is crafted from the outstanding barrels of the vintage. Special Selection is produced only in vintages that proprietor Chuck Wagner feels are suitable for this designation. It's the only wine to ever be named Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" twice, and this is one of their best ever.
Caymus Special Selection remains one of the top producers of the supple side of the style range in Napa. The wine is polished, soft and elegant. But it's not light. It's packed with spicy black and red berries, vanilla, smoke, caramel and blackberries and ends with a long, pure, silky finish.
