Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Red Blend The Collector is drop-dead beautiful. The significant presence of Cabernet Franc gives the Collector a level of aromatic nuance and delineation that is rare in Napa Valley wines. Dark plums, cherries, cloves, cinnamon, scorched earth and incense all come together in this voluptuous, inviting red. Hints of violets, licorice and tobacco linger on the super-ripe, racy finish. A delicious, entry-level red, the Collector will drink nicely upon release and for at least a handful of years beyond. The Collector is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Petite Sirah and 10% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
