I've been stocking up on these each vintage since 2005 and they've never disappointed. They taste great young and age beautifully for years.

The '10 has a big ripe nose of raisins, thyme, bay leaves, alcohol, dark, stewed berries, some mint and anise. Very nice.

Full bodied, luscious mouth-feel. Concentrated fruit and pepper. Some sweetness here but this is a bright, yet herbal and earthy, wine with some tart sourness and crisp minerality. Long, warm, heady finish. Tannin and acid in perfect balance.

Still young and vigorous. Perfect with my lamb stew. Drink or cellar.
