What an unbelievably good bottle of wine. I gave it 89 and 90 in previous notes, but this bottle is/was just that much better. Nice nose of earth, red cherries, and other red fruit. On the palate, the wine is elegant, nice and fruity, and earthy.
Trying to catch up on my TNs so Matt L doesn't give me grief. I remember when I opened the first bottle of this 2010 I was underwhelmed to say the least. This bottle was really good and, in fairness to that first bottle, I likely opened it too soon. This one was earthy, fruity, and well balanced, and had some nice weight to it. What's not to like for about $20?
