The release of the 2010 James O’Neil Cabernet Sauvignon marks the third vintage of this special Cabernet Sauvignon bearing our founder’s name.  Each year we hold aside juice from the best blocks of fruit with the goal of creating a wine that is an absolute expression of our Rutherford estate soil.

The 2010 James O’Neil Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant dark ruby in appearance, bringing forth a complex array of aromas including black cherry, rhubarb, milk chocolate and subtle notes of Rutherford dust envelop the senses. Showing its youthful prime, it delivers a rugged and masculine texture that lingers with an earthy pleasure. Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of winter dishes such as braised meats, hearty stews, or our favorite; Joanna Sullivan’s recipe for Grilled Lamb with Balsamic Sauce.  

Vintage Notes

The growing season was the coolest in memory, although some fruit was lost during two intense heat spikes in August. Temperatures dropped again; a mild Indian summer prompted seeds to ripen 2-3° Brix earlier than in warmer vintages, and forced a later, shortened harvest with lower yields. Flavors and tannins matured at these sugar levels, too, allowing wines with lower alcohol that showcase the concentration, complexity and balance of a long, cool season.
