Horizontal Estate Library Bundle: 2010
The 2010 Vintage:
The 2010 vintage can be called Ana Keller's vintage. Keller Estate was between winemakers and needed a strong female hand to guide it to fruition.
Featuring the best of Keller Estate:
2010 'La Cruz Vineyard' Rôtie Syrah/ Viognier
A stylish Rhône-style blend, offering classy aromas and flavors, with roasted dark berry, , gravelly earth, spice, dried herb, leather and tobacco notes. The finish sails on, ending with firm, fine-grained tannins.
2010 "Precioso" Chardonnay
Rich and fancy in the popular style, showing lots of tropical and citrus fruit, honey, mineral, vanilla, lees and oak flavors, wrapped into a buttery, creamy texture. Brisk coastal acidity provides a pleasant tartness.
2010 'La Cruz Vineyard' Pinot Noir
It's brisk in acidity and strong in tannins, although it preserves Pinot's light, silky texture. The fruits are intensely concentrated in raspberries, cranberries and currants. No reason why this Pinot shouldn't develop in the bottle beyond 2018.
