The 2010 Ciclos is deep red in color with a nose of ripe berry fruit laced with balanced vanilla oak. The wine is full-bodied and driven by sweet berry jam, and spice.

"Bright medium ruby-red. Wonderfully sexy, fresh aromas of black raspberry, cocoa powder, dark chocolate and violet, with syrah-like nuances of game and truffle. Subdued but quite pure on the palate; not thick or overly sweet but offers insidious intensity to its fresh, primary, crushed dark berry, licorice and violet flavors. Harmonious acidity gives this youthfully reticent, very smooth midweight a captivating early balance. Finishes with substantial but very fine tongue-dusting tannins and excellent subtle length. An extremely successful and seamless blend."
