2010 Kelleher "Brix Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

Harvest 2010 occurred on October 30 in the very early morning under an overcast Napa Valley sky. We had just one heat spike in August but otherwise, the summer was a relatively cool one. We are quite thrilled with the 2010 vintage as the wine shows a bit on the softer side than previous vintages and yet it has a solid tannin structure. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking beautifully today and it will continue to age over the ten to fifteen years.
