Bambino 2010


"The Bambino Cabernet is opulent and full-throttle. The black fruit skirts the razor’s edge of over-ripeness in this unabashedly ripe Cab." - Robert Parker

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2010 is silky and layered with refined tannins and nuances of currants, cedar, cloves, and allspice. The 2010 vintage developed into a fruit forward force despite the long cool season. As always, this St. Helena vineyard delivers a blend of spice and a natural acidity in the finish. This wine continues to provide Cabernet Sauvignon fans with a great-value, high-caliber wine that can be enjoyed alone or with the heartiest of meals.
The Bambino is a huge wine bursting with super-ripe dark berries, plums, spices and licorice. It is a round, supple wine endowed with gorgeous richness and a full-bodied, extroverted personality. Fine, silky tannins wrap around the juicy finish. These are decidedly flashy, ripe Cabernets." - Robert Parker
Over several years, Bambino Cabernet Sauvignon has received Parker scores of 91 points (2009), 93 points (2008), 91 points (2004) and also a California Bronze Medal. Naturally, it has become a customer favorite.
