Tasting Notes

2010 tasting note year

Dark berry, blueberry and licorice aromas follow through to a full-bodied, medium-sweet palate, with soft, silky tannins and a clean finish.  Not a big or powerful young Vintage Port, but polished and pretty.  Best after 2015. 1,000 cases made.

Score: 90/100

Cask sample.  The story begins with a pretty perfumed nose of fresh carnations, mocha, boysenberry and cassis with a dollop of spirit character.  Generous and scintillating, the second chapter reveals a mouthfilling, concentrated berry burst of boysenberry and sweet grenadine syrup flavors that wind up being swallowed along with some fresh mint, dark chocolate nuances and ... a bit of heat again.  All of this is delivered in a compact package neatly wrapped in tannins that show refinement and power at the same time, along with bright acid.  The ending is poignant and long with some elegant chocolate that lingers after the last page is turned.  Drink early but those fortunate enough to find some would be well-advised to cellar this for 25 years.

Score: 93/100

Open, opulent, plum and berry aromas; sweet plummy fruit with purity and poise, good, mid-weight, complete with firm, ripe length. Lovely wine for the mid-term From 2020.

Score: 15.5/20
