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 holds 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 beans dazzle on the nose, leading to a super-rich, dense mid-palate with round, chewy tannins. A long finish is driven by notes of black fruit and hints of toasted oak, all exceptionally well-balanced.
