Symmetry

The 2010 vintage started with a cool and fairly wet spring that remained mostly frost free. The late rains generated a healthy canopy, but one that required careful management to avoid green flavors. The cool spring evolved into an exceptionally cool summer, punctuated by a three day heat spike in August which reduced yields in many varieties. September started out warm and continued into October, which was just the kind weather we were waiting for. All five grape varieties seemed to be ripe at once, and picking for Symmetry was concentrated over a two week period, ending successfully on October 27th.

Reviews

“91 Points - A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2010 Proprietary Red Symmetry (15.5% natural alcohol) boasts an inky/purple color along with copious notes of graphite, charcoal, crème de cassis and blackberries. This voluptuously textured, rich, full-bodied wine reveals sweet tannin, outstanding concentration and a long, heady finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next 10-15 years.”

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate January 2014
