28th Annual Barrel Tasting and Vintners Dinner

Featuring the 2010 & 2011 Vintages

Come and taste what is widely regarded as one of California’s greatest vintages
2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: An Epic Vintage Fans of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will find a lot to get excited about with the 2010 vintage. The 2010s are magnificent, viscerally thrilling wines loaded with character and personality. To be sure, the 2010s – the product of a long, cold growing season – are going to require a few years in bottle. This is the type of vintage that is often overlooked upon release, but that consumers regret not purchasing more deeply when the wines start showing their full potential 4-5 years later. There is no question 2010 is the greatest vintage for Napa Valley in the 2008-2011 time period. Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate #204 December 2012
