Hestan Vineyards winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown is one of Napa's most accomplished Cabernet specialists, having garnered multiple 100 point scores from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.  Complex, concentrated and exquisitely structured, our 2010 takes the best of the 2009 and brings it into further focus. In the glass, the wine opens with a mix of dusty red and blue fruits. The juicy core of this wine is layered and framed by wonderful natural acidity that gives it lift and length. The tannins are obvious but well integrated and hint at a long life ahead. Drink 2014 - 2030. We recommend that you decant this wine for two hours or more for maximum enjoyment.
