Ranked #14 of 25 2010 Shiraz from Yarra Valley
Deep red/purple colour, bright. Fresh, vibrant red fruits and vanilla aromas. The palate is tight and firm with sandy tannins and very attractive flavour. Elegant, medium-bodied and shows very good line. Taut, focused red fruit flavours, raspberry and redcurrant. Could be slightly short.
Drink: 2012 to 2022
89 Points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Mea Culpa Shiraz gives aromas of ripe black currant, blackberries and black plums over nuances of black pepper, tree bark and underbrush. Medium-bodied with plenty of vibrant berry and earthy flavors, it has crisp acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long. Drink this one now through 2016.
