Aromas of wood spice, wild cherry and berries predominate. Prettier than the Estate wines usually are with a restrained, almost lean yet full mouth feel. Great acidity, polished tannins, it finishes with a punch! 2010 was unlike any vintage of my current memory. Except for a brief, torrid heat spell in August (which reduced our crop somewhat but seemed to have no other lasting effect), it was one of the coolest growing seasons on record. It makes me think of the 1973 even though I didn’t have the opportunity to taste that wine when it was young. Beautiful now but could it follow the same aging trajectory? There is only one way to find out.............. 310 cases bottled.
Tart sour cherry and berry flavors are tight, with firm tannins, ending a bit clipped, displaying a touch of watermelon and spice on the finish. Decant. Best from 2014 through 2022. 310 cases made. –JL
Deep red. Heady aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry-cola, vanilla and candied licorice, with a spicy topnote. Velvety and seamless in texture, offering sappy, penetrating blueberry and cherry flavors that stain the palate. Strikingly intense but in no way heavy, with supple tannins and excellent finishing power and persistence.
