2010 was a very cold vintage with high levels of acidity which protect fragile aromas and give a great backbone to the wine. It allows the aromatics to be a little less ripe and more subtle, fresh and fragile because at no time was the grape burned by heat. The consequences of that are that the wines are well in balance with lower alcohol levels but still the extraction of great Napa Valley terroir.
