Misha’sVineyard Verismo 2010 Central Otago 14%
Can regionality show in Central Otago Wines - Yes
N: Dark cherry fruit with violets, plum and red apple skin bouquet. A Central Otago suggestion of schist, undergrowth and power.
P: Reflects the power and intensity the nose suggests with youthful vivacious red fruits, firm and dry with moderate+ tannins - this adds tension and even a little poise; the texture shows some chalky and powder attributes from the tannins. Plenty of fruit concentration and flavor with medium+ length. Don't misinterpret this as a description of a block buster wine - there is charm and calmness here too - a quiet achiever.
