The 2010 dances in the glass with a bright purple-sheen and dense crimson body. A subtle note of toasty-oak is yet to integrate into the potent morello cherry strewn bouquet. Further complexity of graphite, salami and bacon notes balance an intense floral lift, whilst whiffs of mint and chocolate finally drift slowly through to a supple, layered palate. A lacy, sweet-fruited cassis-cocktail stuns the palate all wrapped up with rich but etched tannins on the finish. Broader than the emphatic 2009, 2010 shows more of the Bordeaux varietal mix over its savory Shiraz component.
