Tasting Notes 

"2010, a dream vintage." – Duncan McTavish, Winemaker.

On the nose, the cassis from the Cabernet Sauvignon is quite overt, but there is enormous complexity underneath of both blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme. The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture in the mid-palate, progressing to a streak of minerality towards the finish contributing freshness to the wine and complementing a huge quantity of fine-grained tannins. Ironclad 2010 will reward decanting in its youth and will reward long patient cellaring with a wine of immense complexity, power and longevity. 

Cabernet Franc 39%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet sauvignon 18%, Malbec 7%, Petit Verdot 6%.
