Family Reserve Generations

2010 Vintage - Sorry, Currently Sold Out

Our Estate Bottled Generations is a tribute to family tradition and commitment to quality. This vintage displays aromas of bright berries, nutmeg and mocha. Flavors of candied cherry, blackberry and underlying mineral notes segue into a rich, round and long finish.
Wine Spectator - 92 Points - A rich, graceful style, with lively plum, blackberry, floral, cedar and crushed rock notes. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors weave a charming tapestry. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023.— J.L. (10/15/2013)
Wine Enthusiast - 92 Points - A lovely wine, soft and supple, with a superb tannin structure framing the most interesting and delicious flavors. Blackberries, blueberries, red and black currants, anise and cedar notes all come together in balanced harmony, leading to a long, dry finish. Not an ager, but an elegant Napa Valley wine to drink now and over the next few years.— S.H. (10/1/2013)
Wine Advocate - 90 Points - The 2010 Proprietary Red Generations is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc. Another impressively endowed wine, it boasts a deep plum/purple color, rich cassis, licorice, damp earth and oak characteristics and medium to full body. It is somewhat French in style, but the ripeness of California is clearly on display. Drink it over the next 15+ years. —R.P. (10/1/2013)
