2010 vintages notes:

2010 Tanzer - 93 points - Bright red. Captivating nose offers strawberry, animal fur, garrigue, black and white pepper and flowers. Wonderfully aromatic and smooth in the mouth, with excellent sappy lift to the raspberry and cherry flavors complicated by wild herbs and pepper. Finishes structured and long, with suave, slowly building tannins. Very Old World in style (and specifically southern French) but with distinctly Washington red fruit flavors. This was the first year Bob Betz added cinsault to the blend, and that variety has certainly added another element of red fruit perfume. - J.R.

The blend for the 2010 vintage is 65% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre, 11% Cinsault and 6% Syrah. Aromatics of black raspberry followed by notes of lavender blossom, cream, white pepper and toasted earth. This wine is silky and supple and will continue to develop for another 5 to 8 years.
