Tasting Notes

WA93-95

Another standout for the year, the 2011 Futo is endowed with tons of depth and structure, especially within the context of the year. Raspberry jam, flowers, mint, spices come to life in a wine that impresses for its pure resonance and energy. Once again, I am blown away by what Tom Futo and his team have achieved in 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2026.

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.
