Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Hoffman Vineyard Shiraz possesses an extraordinary nose of cassis, crushed blackberries, earth, Bovril and yeast extract with licorice, spice box and dried herbs hints. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed, with a lovely backbone of ripe tannins and great freshness, the long finish here is just incredible. A true "wow" wine, this complex beauty certainly has the potential to hit "perfection" with a little more time in bottle. (LPB) 99+
Released ahead of the 2009, reflecting the even, early vintage, the 2010 could not be more different. It's bursting with blackberry fruit on steroids joined by parma violet florals, followed by savoury layers of prune, liquorice and smoked meat. Dark, juicy and expressive, it has a very persistent salty, mineral finish supported by ripe, powerful tannins. It spent 62 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads.
