This showed a beautifully earthy nose with dried red fruits, spice, dusty soil, minerals and a hint of orange peel. On the palate, it was dark yet vibrant with red berry notes and hints of savory herbs. This firmed up quickly toward the finish yet lasted long with concentrated red berry and hints of soil. It presents excellent value!
nice but not outstanding… red fruited and had the balance of a 2010 red burg but not as much stuffing as i typically see in this vintage… no notes but i suspect this will be better in 7-10 years but never reach the heights a lot of my 2010 premiers will
Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Rose, pink rim; tart, rose, candied, green underneath, cranberry, strawberry, rhubarb, fruit roll-up candy, with air the minerality really came out to the forefront and the sweetness subsided, white rocky limestone; tart fruit on the palate with some herbaceous undertones, sweet and youthful, soft tannin but very tightly wound, razor sharp minerality and acidity; love it; 92+; would like to see this in 7 years.
