N°10 Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 96 | October 29, 2018 | Wine Advocate

100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 62% new French oak for 20 months, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon No. 10 is very deep purple-black in color with lovely espresso, baked plums, stewed cherries and crème de cassis with earthy notions plus hints of sandalwood and sautéed herbs. The palate is big, rich, bold and decadent with velvety tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and spicy with some meatiness coming through. 222 cases produced.

Score: (95-97) | December 29, 2017 | Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon No. 10 (a barrel sample of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is very deep purple-black colored with a nose of crème de cassis, chocolate box, beef drippings and black truffles with mocha, menthol and tapenade hints. Full-bodied, rich, firm, powerful and concentrated, this blockbuster of a Cabernet has fine-grained tannins and a long finish. 150 cases produced.

Score: 95-97+ | December 29, 2017 |

Notes of blackcurrants, smoked herbs, chocolate and gravely minerality emerge from the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon JCB #10, and it’s a full-bodied, opulent, blockbuster style wine that ticks all the right boxes. With awesome purity, fine, polished tannin, terrific concentration, and a great finish, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 2+ decades.
