beautiful wine great attack of black & red fruit on the front of the palate. full & soft mouth feel, with a wonderful finish of dark chocolate & crisp freshness. great now & probably even better in a couple of years...excellent QPR

This wine has all the right components in balance, but now it is relatively "hot". This wine will reward the patient collector after 3 to 10 years of cellar age.
Nice youthful black fruit, little black peeper spice. Soft mouthfeel, good concentration. Will be interesting to watch as it ages.
I opened a bottle of the 2010 last week and found it harsh, with a strong nose of residual pasty yeast.
