Tasting notes
Cherry and cranberry nose. Medium bodied with red fruit, crisp acid and velvety tannins on the palate. Clean finish.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Feb 2012)
The 2010 Torrette bursts from the glass with dark red fruits, grilled herbs, earthiness, tobacco and flowers. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, giving the wine an attractive sense of lift. As always, the tannins are a bit rough around the edges, but at the end of the day, it is the intensity of the fruit and the wine’s overall personality that are most convincing. There will always be an element of wildness here, but that is part of the wine’s DNA. The Torrette is 70% Petit Rouge and 30% other indigenous varieties, and is aged exclusively in stainless steel. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. ”
