2010 vintage. I'm less familiar with this producer but look forward to exploring more. Tight upon opening, but over time the fruit profile really built and became quite lovely. Fresh bing cherry came around, with some taut acidity.

Very fresh and rich, wonderfully full and rounded combination of red and dark fruits, very well integrated!

Somewhat of a fruit bomb but very enjoyable. Excellent overloaded meal at Helm South. We shared the complete menu but had to call it quits with 3 courses to go. Small plates add up.

Ripe, rich, intense red fruit on all fronts. Kind of a one cord song. Hedonistic but not too over the top. Got good scores, not surprising. I'd like to try a different vintage of this.

Nice. Feel like these get better with age. Dark fruit with nice silky tannins.
