Waterstone Napa Valley 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

Waterstone Napa Valley 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $16.99-$22.99, 92 points, poured nearly black at the core, and trended crushed black currant toward the leggy glass wall and clear rim.
Seldom do I recommend decanting, but with quite a bit of sediment, you might want to do so with this Waterstone.
The aroma was a lovely red and black cherry with black currant, anise, cedar, and a hint of lavender.
Full bodied with good acidity and luscious rich and sweet tannin.
In addition to the flavors reflective of the aroma, tobacco and blueberry notes made for a lovely complexity on a rather smooth velvety texture.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, plum, mint, mild spice notes, and a well integrated 14.5% alcohol.
I highly recommend this Cabernet Sauvignon, one that could easily cost between $30-$60. My Waterstone Napa Valley 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon paired perfectly with a barbecued Porterhouse steak.
