Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(RP=95) The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossfire is sourced from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard located in the Oakville AVA. It possesses slightly more richness, texture, and completeness than the Good Times, Bad Times. A deep purple color is followed by abundant notes of creme de cassis and flowers. This full-bodied wine touches all of the taster's sweet spots. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years.
(JS=93) Lots of blackberry and licorice aromas follow through to full-body, integrated tannins, and a fruity, subtle finish. Beautifully balanced and fresh. Drink or hold.
(AG=92+) Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice, and minerals: the blackest to this point. Densely packed and vibrant, with firm, well-integrated acidity energizing the chewy flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, minerals, and sexy oak. Finishes with dusty, serious yet suave tannins, an attractive floral lift, and a slowly mounting length. Built to age. This is classically dry in a similar way to Maltus's Saint-Emilion wines.
