A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes
of cola and dark cherry reduction, then lavender, cardamom, fresh plums and a
suggestion of fine tea leaves. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of the 2007 Ten's
ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish.
"This very dense, tannic Pinot Noir represents a triumph for both the winery, the vintage and the region it represents. A multi-clone blend (hence the name) with high, cool-climate acidity and aged in 100% new oak, it’s still young, fresh and tight. The astringency throws a cloak over the raspberries, cherries, rosehip tea and Indian spice flavors, which reveal themselves only reluctantly. But they’re there, in an imposing texture of velvet and silk."
