Wine Details

Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) "This Dead Horse vintage exemplifies remarkable fruit purity and outstanding texture. Dense aromas of red and black currants mingle with dark floral notes and subtle minerality. Swirling the glass will coax the blackberry compote and sweet vanilla to express themselves more fully. Upon the first taste, the palate is enveloped with supple, velvety black cherry wrapped in layers of black currant, mineral and spice. This wine’s focus, weight and finesse is impressive. The finish is seamless, carrying soft, ripe tannin and fresh acidity. Certainly built to age, yet its youthful vibrancy is a virtue to explore." - Mark Ryan Winery
