Slow to reveal itself, but air brings out tight, dark red cherry fruit with a nice touch of blackberry on the nose. This is quite fruit driven, even a bit sweet to smell but remains fresh and very attractive. At first this appears a touch loose in the mouth though with air the wine tightens up showing a flush of sweet cranberry fruit on entry over a base stony minerality which is supported by well-integrated ripe tannins and fine acidity that balances the wine’s innate sweetness. The finish shows a dark side to the fruit, perhaps even a little black plum skin, though the mineral tension remains on the long, crisp finish. For me this is what 2010 is all about. This should be excellent in 3-5 years time. 92pts
