94pointsHappy Canyon Vineyard 2011 Barrack Family Estate X Ten-Goal Red (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)

Quite approachable for such a heady blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, this wine shows blueberry, black cherry, turned loam and toasted sage on the dense nose. Though driven by ripe purple fruit and purple flower flavors, the palate is lightly spiced with cedar, juniper, tobacco and turned earth. Matt Kettmann
