Kuleto Cabernet Sauvignon 2010




Our 2010 estate Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully summarizes the effect that a cool growing season has on an eastern mountain-top vineyard location. Normally, one might expect a green character and harshness from such a wine, but thanks to the diversity of our terrain, the finished wine is full of fresh fruit and spiciness. It displays a pure and bright hue in the glass. In the mouth, it is compact, fresh, and energetic. Unlike its warm vintage counterparts, it is driven by flavor and acidity rather than by tannin and heat from alcohol. It is definitely more reminiscent of Old World than of New, and while not as opulent in texture and flavor as our highly acclaimed and easy drinking 2009, it will appeal more to those who love to cook, love wine with food (and love wine as food!)
