YEAR'S BEST Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends (Dec 2014)
88 "BEST BUY" Virage 2010. Emily Richer bases this blend on cabernet franc, and merlot grown at Hyde Vineyards in Carneros; focusing on cool-climate sites, she makes the wine at Alpha Omega with Jean Hoefliger. There's a touch of raisining from the late-season heat spikes, but overall this feels rich and supple, the dark plummy fruit holding some bright flavor complexity. It's smooth enough that if you like a glass of red before dinner, this is a pleasure to drink, while still structured enough to settle in when the food arrives.
