The defining attributes of our 2010 Flanagan Cabernet are its ripeness and concentration. The nose reveals hints of cassis, blueberry and vanilla. The palate balances blue and black fruits with abundant but very soft tannins. The texture of our 2010 Cabernet is rich, balanced and polished. The wine is drinking well now and should age beautifully for many years.
The 2010 vintage was a generally cool one with rains in late October. Sites on heavier soils on the valley floor had to pick before the rains. Mountain sites with better drainage and good airflow were able to hang on through the rain and capture an extra week of good weather.
