In its third vintage our 2010 Dos Aguas is a blend of 81% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc. The wine boasts pungent red and black fruits and a powerful, deeply scented bouquet of briarwood and leather. Firm tannins will allow this wine to continue to age gracefully.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Dos Aguas is the winery's red blend version of this brand, mostly Merlot (81%), with roughly equal portions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 26 months in French oak (only 24% new) and comes in at 14.2% alcohol. Elegant in the mid-palate but a bit tight on the finish, this is a pleasing Bordeaux blend that has freshness, some complexity and a serious feel to it. It retains its balance all the while. If someone told me in a blind tasting that this was a Cru Bourgeois, I wouldn't be all that surprised. It does "suave" very well, while not calling attention to itself at any point. There were 2,100 cases produced.

Wine EnthusiastRich, lusciously concentrated black plum and cherry flavors are accented with spice and smoke in this bold, Merlot-heavy blend. Framed with fine, chalky tannins, it's supple and silky in mouthfeel with a moderately long finish.
