2010 Gundlach Bundschu

2010 Vintage Reserve
2010 Gundlach Bundschu Vintage Reserve....$84.99
On the other hand, the 2010 Proprietary Red Vintage Reserve is among the finest wines I have tasted from this estate. A blend of Bordeaux varietals (I assume, but the exact grapes and percentages are not revealed), it reveals a rich, dense purple color in addition to lots of creme de cassis and licorice notes in a full-bodied, opulent, tasty format. Enjoy it over the next 10-15+ years.
Rated 94+/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2010 Gundlach Bundschu Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley...$37.99
Generous aromas of blackberry, currants, dried lavendar and anise. Opulent flavors of juicy blackberries, dark chocolate and espresso are lush and polished, with smooth ripe tannins and balancing acidity giving the wine excellent weight and exceptional length. This is a dark beauty, with a lot of finesse, elegance and serious power. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 5 to 15 years from vintage.
