Wine AdvocateMoving across the Rhone River to the town of Tain-Hermitage and Hermitage hill, the 2010 Hermitage is another stunning wine from the 2010 vintage. A blend of 100% Syrah that spent 38 months in 50% new and 50% 1-year-old barrels, it is classic Hermitage with its rich, layered array of blackberry, crushed rock, vanilla bean, bacon fat and leather. Full-bodied, structured and deeply concentrated, with a serious, age-worthy feel, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and have two decades or more of prime drinking.
