Tasting Notes

V98

The flagship 2010 Futo is rich, deep and implosive. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha, licorice, spices and leather all flesh out in a dark, brooding wine loaded with class and personality. Graphite, cloves and violets appear later, adding complexity,…

WA97+

The 2010 Futo is incredibly closed today, which is hardly a surprise given the personality of the vintage and the wine’s recent bottling in June 2012. Intensely mineral and pointed, the 2010 is endowed with stunning minerality, energy and tension. This is a huge wine with little of the early appeal of many other vintages. Accordingly, it needs considerable time in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

The Winery

Futo

The Futo estate is located in the western hills of the Oakville appellation. There are five distinct estate vineyards that span more than half a mile along the hillside. Each vineyard is divided into half-acre blocks and planted according to the topography, soil and microclimate. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominating varietal, of which, several clones and selections are planted. In addition, there are several acres of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

FUTO is the culmination of efforts to produce the finest Cabernet-based blend possible from our estate vineyards. In making FUTO they strive for a balance of complexity and focus. They believe the wine should display power while retaining the site-specific characteristics that make the wine unique.
