(RP=95) The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossfire is sourced from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard located in the Oakville AVA. It possesses slightly more richness, texture and completeness than the Good Times, Bad Times. A deep purple color is followed by abundant notes of creme de cassis and flowers. This full-bodied wine touches all of the tasterŠ—Ès sweet spots. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years. (AG=92+) Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice and minerals: the blackest to this point. Densely packed and vibrant, with firm, well-integrated acidity energizing the chewy flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, minerals and sexy oak. Finishes with dusty, serious yet suave tannins, attractive floral lift and slowly mounting length. Built to age. This is classically dry in a similar way to Maltus's Saint-Emilion wines.
