2010 Fidelitas, M 100, Columbia Valley

This past September I went nuts over the 2009 Fidelitas, M 100 at a dinner with Julia and Clark at Delancey’s in Seattle.  During my recent trip to Seattle I saw that Pete’s Wine Shop was running a special on Fidelitas wines so I picked up a few of their wines.  2010 was one of the coolest vintages on record and according to Fidelitas is produced smaller yields with “naturally high acidity and excellent concentration of fruit.”  The 2009 M 100 sets the bar high and the 2010 just isn’t there.  Still it is a solid wine, appropriately priced and I would curious to check in on this selection in one year to see what happens.

2010 Fidelitas, M 100, Columbia Valley – $17
This wine is a blend of 39% Malbec, 33% Merlot, and 28% Cabernet Sauvignon which undergoes mallactic fermentation then is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.  There was a nose of fresh, bright red and tart berries.  In the mouth the focused red fruit showed some weight, remained tart with a citrus sweetness and citrus acidity.   There were fine+ tannins in the finish along with red and orange fruit with the tannins in the aftertaste reminding me of the white flesh on on orange peel.  ** 2013-2016.
