DescriptionHundred Acre 'Few and Far Between' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2010
ROBERT PARKERMedium garnet colored, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between comes sashaying out of the glass with drop dead gorgeous scents of kirsch, red roses and moss covered tree bark with a raspberry pie, plum preserves and dried mulberries core plus touches of tilled soil, tapenade, camphor, pencil lead and a waft of crushed rocks. Full-bodied and built like a brick house with tons of muscular black fruits, it has an amazingly firm yet approachable, finely grained structure with fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. I may have been a little conservative with my score here, as all indications point to a wine on a trajectory toward perfection.
VINOUS(the only one of these cabernets that includes some cabernet franc): Bright ruby-red. Lovely floral lift to the aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and musky brown spices, with a note of coconutty oak emerging with air. Large-scaled, chewy and rich, showing compelling early sweetness to its dark berry and saline mineral flavors. Wonderfully velvety, palate-staining wine with enough minerality to maintain its shape and balance. I found this a step up in concentration from the 2009 release.
WINE SPECTATORMatches power with finesse, offering an amazing mix of ripe, zesty, vibrant blackberry, raspberry, black licorice, espresso and kitchen spices. This gains momentum and holds focus, revealing a touch of heat on the finish. Extremely well done in a superripe style. Drink now through 2026. 300 cases made.
