In general, our 2010s are very velvety in structure, with a density and purity of fruit beyond anything we've seen - while retaining a graceful feel to them. Hard to describe, but fascinating to taste. While somewhat similar to our 2009s, the 2010s will be a touch deeper and a bit more refined. If you liked the 2009, you'll love the 2010s!

Starts with a burst of wild berry raciness, then tames down. Clean, pure, vibrant and vivacious, with the wild berry and raspberry fruit core tight and well-focused. Drink now through 2019. 300 cases made.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is another of the more extroverted wine in this lineup. Here, too, the fruit shows signs of overripeness. There is little in the way of bouquet, tannic spine or Garys' character. Instead those qualities have been baked out and replaced by the big fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. Brian Loring is a pretty simple person. He makes fruit-forward, juicy wines to drink young, just the way he likes them. An engineer in his former life, Loring has no patience for the imperfections of cork, so everything is bottled under screwcap. A few years ago I was not a huge fan of the Loring wines. I didn't always think they reflected the personalities of their respective sites, but that seems to be much less of an issue these days. Readers who seek immediacy and exuberance are going to love these wines. Based on the wines I tasted, the 2010s are stronger than the 2011s.
