Community Tasting Note

  • DrZett wrote: 94 points

    December 19, 2018 - Beautiful dark fruits and floral notes in the nose.
    Black cherries, plum, mocha and some smoked aromas on the palate. Very complex body with great structure and stiff tannins - not too heavy, just perfect.
    It is aged for 14 month in French barriques.
    It is just my second vintage of this wine after trying the 2009 a few years ago. I rated the 2009 with 91 points but the 2010 is even better! It is perfect now but will gain complexity over the next couple years and will be perfect around 2021.
    Great price tag for this quality too in my opinion. If you see it in a restaurant or a wine store give it a try! Just 2,200 cases produced in 2010.

But as always, if you want to drink it, just open it whenever you want and give it some air. I always decant larger bottles in regular decanter so that they get more air. Cheers
