Our estate grown 2010 Kelleher “Brix Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep dark ruby color with bright fruit forward aromas of Bing cherry, spice chocolate and coffee. The tannins are smooth yet firm, which makes this wine wonderful to enjoy now but know that it, will age and mature beautifully. The wine is balanced yet concentrated with a smooth richness on the palate.

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.
