The 2010 Pratt vineyard is the 5th vintage and a constant fan favorite. MacPhail has been waiting 3 years for this release, and they can say she was definitely worth the wait. There is a woodsy / spiced black cherry on the nose that smacks you with its intensity. Supply and fleshy in the mouth with a savory herbal side. Lots of dimension with a persistent finish. As usual, a beautiful ager.
Bright ruby. Ripe dark berry and cherry aromas show an initial jamminess and pick up smoke and musky herb nuances with air. Broad and fleshy, with profound black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Closes taut and long, with chewy tannins and very good clarity.
High-toned, vivid wild berry and raspberry flavors have a spicy, stemmy, floral edge that adds dimension, finishing tight and persistent.
As appealing as a dessert pastry, this has raspberry and cherry fruit, with roasted almond, sweet vanilla and buttered toast flavors. Not particularly complex, but it scores high on the delicious scale.
