This 2010 ZD Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with complexity. Intense aromas of cassis, plum, ripe blackberries and subtle hints of clove, lavender and toasty vanilla support a solid core of ripe fruit on the palate. The balance is structured but elegant, with soft, velvety tannins and a perfect acid/tannin balance that will ensure its long term ageability. The grapes are from several of our premium, small, intensely farmed and low- yielding Napa Valley vineyards including ZD’s own organically farmed Rutherford Estate. After almost a year in barrel as individual lots, the wines were blended and returned to barrel for an additional two years of “resting” in American oak barrels. This wine is a true testament to ZD’s belief in the art of blending. Only 590 cases produced. Enjoy!
