Product Description

“This is rich and round with a juicy, savory palate of crushed berries. Minerals too. Full body, with velvety tannins and a delicious finish. So delicious now but better in 2016.” James Suckling 92 Points

“New wood aromas, and a tight palate, very toasty in character. Blackberry juice is under the wood, with the relief of final acidity.” Wine Enthusiast 90-92 Points

“The 2010 Fontenil displays loads of crushed rock and floral notes intermixed with raspberries, red currants and some darker fruits such as blueberries. It is medium to full-bodied, with relatively soft tannins but good acidity, ripeness and focus. It should drink nicely for at least a decade.” Robert Parker 91 Points

“Fresh and racy, with a very direct beam of black cherry and red currant fruit, gently laced with tobacco and sage hints that glide through the inviting finish. Not as grippy as the best, but shows lovely purity and balance, with deceptive length.” Wine Spectator 91 Points

“Bright, full red-ruby. Sexy nose combines raspberry, flowers, menthol and crushed rock accented by licorice and mint. Juicy, spicy and firm, with sound acidity enlivening the flavors of blueberry and licorice. Not at all overdone; in fact, a bit youthfully disjointed today owing to its acidity. Finishes fresh and persistent, with serious, dusty tannins spreading out to coat the incisors. I'd wait four or five years before pulling the cork.” Vinous 90 Points
