Similar to the 2009 in its silky texture, but lacks the length and depth of that excellent wine. Ripe cherry flavors with attractive spiciness and a subtly floral perfume. Full in the mouth, but soft and feminine in style, eminently drinkable but just lacking that edge of intensity that separates the 2009 from the 2010. (Price is the futures price, which is probably 20%-30% below retail.) - HK 2015-02-11
