The Story: The name comes from the theory that says to become truly accomplished at something, it takes at least 10,000 hours of practice. This hold true for winemaking too, where in their case the hours are counted in decade, and there are no shortcuts.
Why You’ll Love Me: Black cherry, plum, warm vanilla and espresso bean on the nose. Huge entry on the palate leads to super-rich, dense mid palate with round, chewy tannins. Long finish driven by black fruit notes and hints of toasted oak.
