Hidden Ridge

The wines from our vineyard this year show complex cassis, bramble, tea and tobacco notes buoyed by unusually rich and dense chocolate enrobed blackberry, dark cherry and black plum flavors laced with clove and nutmeg. As the wine finishes, flavors turn to blackberry, mocha, anise, and a hint of mint carried on rich velvety mountain tannins. Beautiful now with decanting the wine will continue to develop for a decade or more.

Wine Spectator

Intense, chewy and full-bodied, with chunky currant, mocha, mineral, sage and dried berry flavors that are powerful and focused. Finishes with firm tannins that remind one to cellar. Best from 2011 through 2017.

Score: 88. —James Laube, September 30, 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

A very good, richly tannic wine that flatters with strong flavors of blackberries, cherries and oak. It may be a little too ripe for its own good, though, as it's pretty jammy. For some reason, the winery lowered the price considerably from the 2005, which was a much better wine.

Score: 87. —Steve Heimoff, September 01, 2010.
