2010 St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon, Doc Gold Vineyard
David (Doc) Gold is our local vet, a gentle giant of a man and the first guy you ring up when one of your beloved animals is in need of top quality care. He also just happens to own one of the sweetest 2.5-acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in all of Napa Valley, with rocky subsoil that allows moisture to drain like a hillside vineyard. We are tremendously grateful to showcase this wonderfully ripe and structured fruit in its purest single-vineyard form.
You’ve probably heard the rumors. That 2010 is an incredible vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon. Doc Gold’s hear to back it up. Inviting aromas of raspberry, cherry, licorice and spice lead to big, juicy flavors of blueberry and cigar box. Tannins are once again well-integrated, soft, but with rumbling power. The mid-palate shows incredible depth and complexity with a long, smooth finish. Match up against a classic ribeye steak and enjoy.
