2010 Long Shadows Columbia Valley Chester Kidder - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(15.1% alcohol; a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah and 5% petit verdot; aged in 90% new oak barrels whose staves were air-dried for 36 months; bottled in March of 2012; made by winemaker/estate manager Gilles Nicault): Deep ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, graphite and sexy oak lifted by violet and licorice notes reminded me a bit of Napa Valley. Supple, broad and attractively gentle, conveying an impression of superb breadth without any excess weight. The flavors of black cherry, cassis and flowers carry through on the long finish, which features very fine tannins and excellent length. I never would have guessed the octane level here. - Stephen Tanzer."
- Antonio Galloni's Vinous (December 2014), 92 pts
