WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
The 2009 vintage was estate-grown at Rapaura and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques and puncheons. Savoury and supple, it is ruby-hued, with ripe plum and spice flavours, seasoned with toasty oak, and good complexity. The 2010is deeply coloured, with loads of plummy, spicy flavour. Sweet-fruited and savoury, it's approachable now, but best opened mid-2012+.
