2010 Gravura - Forward nose of Red Willow fruit, with pencil lead, fresh herbs, espresso powder, and mocha. The palate is focused and generous, with freshening mint and herb notes along with black raspberry, cassis, and mocha flavors. A deliciously complex, balanced wine.

International Wine Cellar(an homage to Graves; 54% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and 6% cabernet franc): Good full red-ruby. Spicy aromas of redcurrant and tobacco leaf complicated by garrigue high notes. Juicy, complex and intense, with raspberry, cocoa powder, lead pencil and brushy earth tones that do remind me of Graves. This rather suave wine finishes with refined tannins and very good length.

Wine AdvocateKicking off the reds and the estate's entry level Bordeaux blend, the 2010 Gravura is a classically styled effort that oozes black currant, pencil shavings, herb and tobacco aromas and flavors. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc that spent 20 months in 50% new French oak, it is medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced with awesome purity of fruit, juicy acidity and lots of ripe tannin. It will delight old school Bordeaux lovers and shine for over a decade. Drink now-2020+.
