Reviews of purchase Henschke, "Henry's Seven", 2010
The wine is bright red with a violet hue.
The rich, juicy taste of wine is dominated by notes of ripe plum, as well as brackish and licorice nuances. Fine-grained tannins provide a stable texture and length slim aftertaste.
The wine has an intense aroma, harmonious interplay of different tones of blackberry, plum and anise with floral and spicy undertones.
The wine goes well with meat dishes, game and cheeses.
The vegetation period in 2010 was preceded by a winter with high rainfall. Spring was soft, but with a few frosts that with a bit of maturing crop up until the 30-degree heat in the late spring. Vines matured rapidly until mid-summer, but their growth was again suspended cool temperatures and occasional thunderstorms in the second half of the summer. It is interesting that as a result of maturation occurred a week earlier than in the previous year, and the conditions under which it occurred, provided the crop of high concentration with bright fruitiness.
