The 2010 Estate Cuvée has a beautiful garnet color. The aromas are bright and floral with hints of sweet vanilla, forest floor and petunia. The flavors follow the aromas with a smooth, sweet entry of cherry cobbler, juicy strawberries, and Asian spices. The red fruit and spice transform into a slate-like, herbal finish that lingers on the tongue. This wine is very approachable when young. The aging potential is 5+ years. We recommend pairing with steamed Chinese chicken dumplings, or a simple filet of sole or roast chicken.
Scents of earth give way to a lean set of palate flavors, the texture surprisingly nimble and bright. This wine's tannins are forceful at the moment, needing a bit of time in the cellar to integrate with the fruit.
