    July 25, 2021 - My last of four bottles bought at auction @6 months ago. Yes, I probably paid double what they were sold for in @2011, but … it was worth it IMO. This bottle seemed a bit darker and meatier than the other three but it was excellent nonetheless. It seemed perhaps more concentrated, more full bodied than the others. In any case, after having had four bottles in about as many months, I can say that even this basic 2010 Sonoma bottling is still singing beautifully. I’d definitely buy more, knowing it’ll be drinking well for several years to come.

    June 20, 2021 - Just as great as prior bottles drunk in April 2021. This bottle may have been a touch better, in fact. No bricking. And not noticeably cloudy as prior bottle. Delicious cherry and tart raspberry, with vibrant acidity. Has years and years of good drinking left. Dynamite.

    April 14, 2021 - Similar to recent 2010 in flavors - tart cherry, in particular. Very tasty. Poured cloudy out of the bottle, with some light bricking. As in prior bottle, solid beam of acidity. Has many years to go!

    April 9, 2021 - Not quite as much fruit concentration as the 2011 R-M Silver Eagle drunk last week but that’s nitpicking - this 2010 Sonoma Coast is super. Loved it. Tasty cherry and raspberry flavors, the fruit perhaps not as tart as the ‘11 Silver Eagle. Bought a few of these recently at auction so don’t know what it was like in earlier days but ... still drinking beautifully and should be for 5 years to come.

    March 23, 2021 - Loved it. Everything was on point. Tannins, fruit, acidity, and alcohol integrated in one cohesive beautiful wine. I can’t believe it was only $25 on release.
