 Buccella's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is drop-dead gorgeous. Violets, mint, crushed rocks, licorice and smoke jump from the glass in a vibrant, focused Cabernet loaded with class. The trademark Buccella richness is there, but the 2010 has a level of pure energy I have never seen here before. Blackberry jam, graphite, smoke and pencil shavings linger on the finish. This is an exceptional Caberent Sauvignon made in a rich, opulent style with fabulous balance and tons of personality. The 2010 is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with dollops of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, aged 22 months in French oak, 80% new. It's great to revist Buccella's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that has developed beatifully over the last year. This is a fabulous showing from Buccella, winemaker Rebekah Weinburg and consultant winemaker Celia Welch.  (11/2013)
