TASTING NOTES

If you enjoyed our ‘09 Stiling, the 2010 is a slam dunk. Similar in depth while a touch lighter on its feet, it offers all the rich fruitiness of its older sibling with the same slow-evolving personality that earns it a later release date each year. Quite tasty now, we nonetheless recommend another year or so of age before digging into your stash.

A dark, rich red in hue, the nose offers up classic strawberry, cola nut and cinnamon with whispers of cigar box and wild mushrooms. Bold flavor and texture envelop the palate, featuring more strawberry, tart cherry and cranberry, followed by Stiling’s signature baking spices. Excellent acidity balances the richness and will support it throughout the meal and the coming years in your cellar.
