Curiously the 2010 Corullon at this stage of development shows the effect of the wood-aging more than the younger 2011. Right now it is a lot more restrained than the 2011. You have to deep-dive into the glass to understand the wine. The fruit is more acidic strawberry, denoting freshness. It is linear rather than round, acute rather than low with superb balance and delineation, fine acidity and very good length. You really have to pull out the wine, as the palate follows the same pattern as the nose, which is not always the case. With wonderful acidity, it is a wine for the long haul.

Lots of cherries to sniff - almost pinot noir like - and savoury in the mouth, with masses of fine tannins, mouth-coating and powdery. Also great depth of black fruits on palate of dark cherries, then a very long finish coated with ample tannins. This will really reward ageing.

Bright violet color. Pungent, youthful aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry-cola and candied violet, with a mineral topnote. Offers an array of sappy red and dark fruit flavors, with spicecake and anise nuances building with air. Silky tannins give shape and grip to a long, penetrating finish.
