  • The wine is fragrant with red berries, slightly spicy notes, hints of nutmeg and vanilla; flavors of dark berries, herbs and spice, hints of vanilla carry through to the palate; and the mouth-feel is very nicely balanced and rich.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    A great satisfaction in producing our Vineyard Designate series of Cabernet Sauvignon is the selection of the wine to be used. Since 1989, we have produced this Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tietjen Vineyard in the renowned Rutherford appellation of Napa Valley. We produced only 6 barrels from the 2010 vintage. 28 Months in 100% New French Oak, Medium Plus Toast, Tight Grained.
    Winemaker Notes
    As ever, for a true and pure 100% single vineyard bottling, this Vintage 2010 exhibits all the classic Tietjen Vineyard characteristics: The Tietjen Vineyard expresses itself with moderately dark fruit and elegant tannins on the mid-palate. This has made it one of the consistently great wines for us to work with in terms of both blending and as a stand-alone vineyard designate. 6 Barrels Produced. Drink Now through 2025. Decanting Always Recommended (30-60 minutes).
