Winemaker Notes:

The 2010 Mariner is representative of the cooler vintage with moderate temperatures. Initial aromatics speak to those cool vintage characteristics with bright red fruits and dried floral. After several minutes of aeration, the wine becomes much more intricate with dark cherry, cassis, toasty oak and hints of espresso. On the palate, the flavors are harmonious and supple, with blackberry and black tea combining with a fine toasty complexity. The tannins are smooth and round, lending excellent structure to this wine. The finish is long and lingering with a charming flavor profile that entices one for another sip.
