This is another magnificent wine. How much fun will it be to have the 2000, 2005, 2009 and 2010 in future tastings to see which vintage comes out on top? They are all candidates that will flirt with perfection, depending on the state of their evolution. The 2010 has a similar color to the 2009, but is perhaps even more opaque, which seems almost impossible. Subtle barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberry liqueur, licorice and chocolate jump from the glass, and the wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of sweet, velvety, full-bodied, concentrated black fruits, nice definition from the tannins and decent acidity. The wine has a majestic, multilayered finish that goes on for a minute. This magnificent wine is still frightfully young and still somewhat unformed, but every bit as prodigious as its older sibling, the 2009. This will probably end up evolving on a slightly slower evolutionary track. However, it has 50 years of longevity in it. Robert Parker

Good, but not as great as some others-wanted more silk on the palate

My first wine of an incredible tasting! A beautiful nose of plump roasted red and black plums, dark chocolate, black pepper, spice and touch of oak. The palate opens up to a velvet texture that is tight but has a core of black fruits and wet stone surrounded by a savory component that holds on to a long finish. #mwtasting

Yeah yah I know...it's too young. But man this is rocking stuff. Put this with some 100pt 2010 Cali stuff and it showed them to the door. Might take 20years for this to really show what it has but it's close to perfect now. 97+ 5-10years it's 100pt wine every day
