This is one of eight new 2010 Cabernet or Bordeaux-style blends from the winery, and they're all very fine wines, more alike than not. The Spaulding is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot and Petit Verdot. It's moderate in alcohol, bone dry and enormously tannic, with classic black currant and dark chocolate flavors that finish complex and hard with minerals. Will develop for many years. Best after 2018.
