A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of noble fir, ganache, dusty blueberry and blackberry cobbler. Firm, mature tannins-evidence of Ten's ageability-are followed by a long, velvety finish.
Big, deep and hard in tannins, this wine shows the estate's power and concentration, bearing blasts of cherries, currants, persimmons and cola. The flavors are pinpointed with laserlike focus, with hints of cocoa powder and tamari. It should begin to open by 2017, and develop for many years afterward.
A reined-in style, this captures the delicate mix of blueberry, wild berry, rose petal, subtle mineral and earth touches, supported by vibrant acidity and graceful tannins. Blueberry notes echo on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,500 cases made.
