2010 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L
Spring Mountain District
Rich in color the 2010 Rattlesnake Hill is powerful and layered on the nose. Aromatics of fennel, black earth and black tea are wrapped in sweet dark chocolate, blackberry and concentrated vanilla. A whole kitchen cabinet of spices begins to emerge, chiefly nutmeg and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is silky and opulent. On the palette concentrated cassis gives way to cedar and graphite while the chalky tannins begin to emerge. Black fruit and cocoa linger on the finish for a long time. This vintage will show wonderfully after 15-16 years (2027-2028), but will hold much longer for those with patience.
