A deep, rich, black cherry color in the glass opens with intriguing notes of licorice and white pepper on the nose. Red fruits and spice dance on the palate while licorice and black cherry linger, leading to a very long finish. Discreet tannins and a lively minerality indicate a wine with great aging potential. The 2010 vintage was a perfect year for Merlot, which is reflected in this balanced and elegant wine.

The 2010 La Muse (14.4% alcohol) is a blend of 84% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the more soft, opulent, precocious wines I have tasted from this estate, it exhibits abundant notes of spicy oak, plum, Asian soy, new saddle leather, barrique, black cherries and black currants. Round and generous with considerable fat and succulence, it can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for 15-20.
