94 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
(100% cabernet sauvignon from Coombsville): Bright medium ruby. Musky, inviting aromas of blueberry, licorice, earth and bonfire. Sweet, plush and deep, with a distinctly layered mouth feel and no shortage of energy. Really mounts and builds on the long, structured, gripping back end. An outstanding and very fresh example of Coombsville cabernet. (ST) (5/2013)
94 points Vinous
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth. Spices, grilled herbs, dark red cherries, tobacco and dried flowers all take shape in a voluptuous, resonant wine endowed with terrific intensity and purity. Today the aromatics are especially expressive and attractive. This is a beautifully balanced, totally harmonious Cabernet from Dancing Hares. (AG) (11/2013)
92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa from proprietor Fritz Hatton is another winner. Rich and dense with an inky/blue/purple color, plenty of tannin and graphite, a touch of oak, and attractive spice, purity and texture, this young Cabernet should be forgotten for several more years, and drunk over the following 15-20, perhaps longer.

Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
