It has Pessac-Leognan-like aromas of charcoal, scorched earth, crème de cassis, and a distinct loamy soil/earthy character as well as minerality. Full-bodied, powerful and masculine wiht mouthwatering levels of extract in addition to mouthwatering levels of tannin, this 2010 needs to be forgotten for at least a decade, and drunk over the following 30-40 years. It could be a 50-year wine.

Espresso, mocha, cloves, violets and plums all meld together in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard. Rich, sumptuous and layered, the 2010 boasts tons of depth and pure structure.
