LARGE FORMAT 1.5L
The 2010 is a Pyramid-heavy blend that shows very intense, dark color, aroma, and flavor: plums, blackberries, chocolate, smoke. The 2010 also shows some of the same surprisingly bright, high-tone finish notes as the 2009, but it is decidedly less tannic and more lush. The 2010 may not be at its peak, but it is very expressive right now and has some of the same soft, silky tannin shown by the 2005 and 2006 at the same age – all things that make it a pleasure to drink immediately. That said, this wine will be happy in the cellar for another decade.
