Even better, the 2010 Dancing Hares is deeper and fuller with more structure as well as a lot of the sensuality exhibited by the 2009. Composed of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, it boasts a dense purple color and notes of wet rocks, blueberries, black raspberries, mulberries, espresso and subtle background oak. The delicious aromatics are followed by a deep, supple, round, opulent wine with some tannin underlying the extravagant fruit. A beauty of purity and symmetry, it is capable of lasting two decades or more. This small five-acre property is owned by Paula Brooks and Bob Cook, who have spared no expense on either the wines or their consultants, bringing in Andy Erickson and Michel Rolland. Obviously the production is small. I did not taste the Mad Hatter cuvee, which I assume is a second wine.

Packs a lot into a big yet graceful frame, with firm, dense blackberry, tar, licorice, crushed rock and floral scents that linger on the finish, offering subtle flavor nuances. Drink now through 2024. 418 cases made.
