92pointsDelectus 2010 Cuvée Julia Red (Knights Valley)

Easy to see what the winemaker was aiming for with this Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. Sheer opulence was the goal, and it succeeds. The wine is soft and gentle, with ultrarefined tannins and incredibly ripe, concentrated blackberry jam, blueberry, chocolate and sweet oak flavors. The alcohol is quite high, which gives it a glyceriney sweetness and also precludes aging. Drink now–2014.
