Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of dried blueberries and fresh blackberries, then a myriad of spices, lavender and black cherry. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of Ten’s ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish.

    Nothing short of a powerhouse Pinot that is unstinting in both deep fruit and rich oak, this very plush, full-bodied bottling pulls back from the brink of runaway excess and shows remarkably good balance for the very big wine that it is. Still a bit gruff and a touch taut at the finish, it never lets go of its wonderfully keen fruit, and all signs point to an impressive peak some five or six years down the line.
