Bright, dark ruby. Very dark, primary, restrained aromas of inky cassis, tar (from the Petit Verdot?), cocoa powder, crushed stone and scorched earth. At once fleshy and powerful, showing strong primary fruit for the vintage along with mineral and bitter chocolate notes. As dense and youthfully imploded as it is, this opulent Cabernet benefits from harmonious acidity and its firm, building tannins are not at all dry or hard. Finishes with outstanding thickness and length. This, too, will need time to reveal itself and is likely to be long-lived. Emerson described 2010 as "a big, structured, later-ripening year."

Years to go. Great winery great wine. Red fruit balance tannins, a long lingering mid pallet taste. Lovely 🍷
