94 points "The Merlot-based 2010 Proprietary Red Wine Firebelle boasts stunning depth, power and richness. Black cherries, chocolate, spices and new leather explode from the glass in this deep, resonant wine. There is more than enough fruit to fill out the wine’s big, broad-shouldered frame. This is an especially structured vintage for the Firebelle, partly because the Merlot is the lowest ever. Winemaker Andy Smith did a lot of co-ferments with the 2010 to bring all of the elements together. The 2010 is 42% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc." Best 2018-2030

90 points "Good medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of raspberry, tobacco, minerals and loam; more floral than the 2007. Then sweet and sexy in the mouth, with raspberry and currant flavors complicated by notes of violet and iron. Tannins are nicely buried in sweet fruit. 90-92 points."
