While we enjoyed this wine, 2010 continues to be our least favorite vintage for many Loring wines, including this one. Like some of the 2010 this wine is somewhat harsher, disjointed then other vintages. That said, we stilled enjoyed the layers of fruit and spice flavors. Not sure if more time will improve this wine, but we have one move bottle, so we will find out.
Typical Loring (full) mouthfeel, somewhat reticent nose (partly because someone put it in the icebucket with all the white wines at a party. After it warmed a bit the cherry notes began to flex their muscles. A bit more pronounced oak notes than most Lorings. Not overly done, just distinctly evident - probably should have let it age some more. My last one.
