91 points "(includes 12% cabernet franc): Ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, licorice and minerals. Energetic but extremely bound-up, with vibrant, sexy red berry, spice and iron flavors framed by almost peppery acidity. Conveys a low-pH, rather low-alcohol impression for a Dalla Valle wine. 91-93 points"

98 points "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon has been utterly majestic each and every time I have tasted it over the last six months. A towering, statuesque wine, the 2010 exudes tremendous power, richness and pure structure. Sweet spices, violets and graphite jump from the glass, followed by smoke-infused black cherries, plums and cassis. The 2010 is quite a bit darker and more virile than the 2009. Its hallmarks are energy, focus and breathtaking balance. A huge, mineral-drenched finish rounds things out in style. This is one of the great wines of a great year." Best 2018-2030

92 points "Combines richness with finesse and grace, offering ripe dark berry, currant, loamy earth and dusty, cedary oak with firm, gripping tannins that echo the fruit and pleasing earthiness." Best 2014-2024
