Brothers Ridge

The 2010 vintage started with a cool and fairly wet spring at Brothers Ridge. Late rains generated a larger than typical canopy that required careful management, but nothing too out of the ordinary thanks to Brothers steep slopes and fast draining soils. The cool spring evolved into an exceptionally cool summer, followed by a September that started out warm and got even warmer at the Brothers, promoting the kind of complete physiological ripeness we look for there. Finally, we waited out a five day hot spell that ended on October 14th, and began harvesting block 1 and 5 the very next day, adding block 8 on the 18th, and finishing with block 4 on the morning of the 20th , as dawn temperatures dipped deep into the 40s.

Reviews

“91 points - The gripping tannins are evident early on, wrapped around a rich mix of red and black fruits, gaining depth and a range of flavors, with melted black licorice folding in. Ends with cedar-graphite tannins...Best from 2014 through 2025. J.L.”

- Wine Spectator November 2013

“90 points - This wine is 100% Cabernet, sourced from one of the winery's vineyards in a warm part of Alexander Valley. It's quite ripe, with flavors of cherry pie, red plum, currants, tobacco, cola and new French oak. The tannins are lush and soft, but the wine will develop for many years. Drink now - 2020, at least.”
