Tinhorn Creek Vineyards 2010 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red - 90pts
Availability: Direct from winery here and private wine shops
Date Tasted: October 11th, 2013
Tasting Notes: Signature sweet tobacco and dark blackberry aromas are complimented nicely by ample toasted oak and spicy vanilla notes on the nose of this consistently excellent Meritage blend from Oliver's Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. The 2010 blend consists of 41% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot aged for 18 months in French oak creating a complex and smoky textured palate endowed with blue fruit, light mineral and toasted oak flavours supported by fine tannins and well balanced acidity.
Thanks to an extra year of aging in the bottle, this tasty blend is ready to go now and will hold for many years. Drink now-2018.
