With 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2010 Family Cabernet is a blend incorporating fruit from Henry Ranch and Vittorio's and Preston Vineyards. It's made in an engaging style, with earthy notes - sweet ginger, cocoa and hints of lilac. It is a juicy wine with a balanced sweet-and-savory character, strong on flavor, light on tannins. Young, juicy Cabs are best with longer-cooked meats, like beef stews or pot roast.
