Earthy notes of tobacco, loam and forest floor are balanced with floral characteristics of violets and orchids. Rich, ripe plums and blueberries are present in the mouth with notes of espresso and chocolate covered cherries. This well-structured wine has round, integrated tannins and will age beautifully, if you have the patience!

Wine AdvocateThe Cabernet Franc-based 2010 Red Blend Labor of Love is one of the more tightly wound wines in this lineup. Precise and beautifully articulated, the 2010 stands out for its length and sheer purity of fruit. Anise, roses, and raspberry jam are some of the aromas and flavors that flow through to the bright, nuanced finish. There is a centeredness to the 2010 that is highly appealing. Labor of Love is 78% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine SpectatorA muscular effort, with a core of chewy dark berry, black licorice, dried herb and cedar, this pulls together on the finish, where the focus is tighter, showing a tannic strength. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022.
