Of the 2010: Ripe fruit is to the fore with plump cherries and some plums as well as some sweet raspberry fruit. This is a highly perfumed wine with floral and spicy notes. There is a dusty, earthy element as well. Rich and generous with a smooth silky texture. The fruit mixes seamlessly with the earthy notes and the oak is even more in the background. The finish sees a combination of acid with some firm chalky tannin and it is very long in the aftertaste.
