Full-bodied and chock full of exotic spice and floral notions, it has a firm, grainy backbone and a long, perfumed finish.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a knock-out nose of black currants, camphor and a hint of spring flowers. I was blown away by the wine’s richness, purity, depth and dimension. There are just under 1,000 cases of this stunning Cabernet, which should drink well for 20+ years. It is a big time sleeper of the vintage.

Salvestrin can boast multiple generations farming its vineyards since 1932, so this is by no means a newcomer to the Napa Valley wine scene. These wines never seem to get old, and this will be one our grandchildren can enjoy circa 2050.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D is a limited production, inky purple wine that offers big, chocolate notes intermixed with licorice, blackberry, black currants, and spice. The wine is rich and full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, texture, and length. The tannins are there, but are concealed by a cascade of black fruit. This serious wine will benefit from several years of cellaring and drink well for 20 or more years.

Drink: 2015 – 2030

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D from the Dr. Crane Vineyard is a beauty. Notes of wet pebbles, crème de cassis, blackberry and earth jump from the glass of this cuvée that represents 350 cases. The wine is rich, full, complete, with beautiful sweet fruit, ripe tannin and a multi-layered mouthfeel. This is terrific wine to drink over the next 15 or more years.

The more expensive 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon 3D (which stands for 3 blocks, 3 lots, 3 barrels, 3 daughters) is even better than the basic cuvee, but of course, there is virtually none of it. It possesses a black/purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of black currants, blackberries, camphor, incense and hints of background wood and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich, pure and multidimensional, it is a killer Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25-30 years. Kudos to the Salvestrin family!
