2010 vintage. Cocoa powder, black currant, river bank, cedar, cinnamon dusting, gingerbread, dark rye, espresso, sapodilla, and croissant nose. Red cherry, red currant, cinnamon bark, black pepper, espresso, tart blackberry, crushed violet, light anise and cherrywood. Lovely wine with lots to grow, and lots to love.

Had this open with the 2015. The 10 is classic in style. lead pencil and mineral thing going on. Awesome bottle but the 15 stole the show.

Wonderful comparison between (as one taster mentioned) the femininity of Lalande vs the masculinity of Baron. The theme held true throughout the night with most Barons being bigger and bolder and the Lalandes being more elegant and refined. Both beautiful but different.
