This smells a touch heavy with plums and forest floor aromas on the nose with a light dandelion green top note. A bit chunky in the mouth, this also seems a bit soft, which may make it appear sweeter than it is. The flavors of black cherry add complicating notes of black olive and toasted nuts on the mid-palate and then a hint of toasted marshmallow on the back end.The finish is a bit dry and shows some vanilla streaks over light sour cherry fruit. This lacks some energy and definition in the mouth and never really gets going in the glass. 85pts

The 2010 is supple and rich with flavors of red berries, warm spice, earth, and chocolate, along with mineral characteristics that are reflections of this cool climate region. The toasty finish is silky and long.
