Torbreck Les Amis 2010
Wine AdvocateMedium deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Les Amis displays gorgeous kirsch and raspberry compote notes accented by potpourri and roses, baking spices, cloves and some meatiness with pepper. Ripe and rich, medium-firm, silky tannins frame a concentrated and layered palate through a long and refreshing finish. Seductive in its youth, it should drink best from 2014 to 2024+.
Wine SpectatorDark and superrich, with brown sugar-laden black cherry and spice flavors that explode into a cascade of gooeyness on the long finish. Not for the faint of heart, but very impressive. Grenache. Drink now through 2016. 118 cases imported.
