Good dark ruby-red. Brooding aromas of dusty black cherry and licorice. In a powerful, very tight style, not showing the flesh or sweetness of the 2009. This distinctly tough wine is likely to need a longer elevage, noted Keplinger, who told me that Mark Aubert's assistant Ross Wallace, who vinified this wine, cut back on extraction in 2010 (Keplinger's first vinification here was 2011). Finishes firmly tannic, with mineral and saline elements. Tricky to taste today.
