2010 Corley Proprietary Red Wine
This is a bold wine with nice balance. The aromas are very intriguing. I find mixed dark berry fruits, a little smokiness, and a light peaty aroma. The dark fruit nose frames pleasantly with hints of creamy chocolate. This is a that we have found in some of our past Corley Proprietary Red Wines having a little age behind them.
I find it appealing to have this element displaying itself early on with this vintage. The wine has a bold attack on the palate. It is full bodied with medium-grip tannins and an expansive mid-palate. The finish is full and lingering and in its youth will display some of the aforementioned tannins, which will naturally soften with time.
