It's our 10th wedding anniversary later this year, and I thought a bottle from 2010 would be something nice to share. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Some more info would assist members giving suggestions

Do you like red / white / sparkling - (in red / white / rose etc)?

2010 would likely need to be purchased via auction, what is your budget?

I reckon a decent bottle shop would have back vintage stuff for 2010. 2010 was an excellent vintage in many wine regions around the world.

Bordeaux, Burgundy, Barolo, Margaret River (reds and whites), Barossa etc.

Do you have a budget? I suggest either a visit to the Dan's website and filtering by vintage or going to any decent wine shop (ie, not Liquorland kinda place) and talk to them.

Red definitely. I guess my budget would be $100-150

Grand Burge Mesach ~$135 if not on sale. Can be found far cheaper.

I also like Henschke Abbott’s Prayer but it is below your target price with RRP around $80 before usual discounts or sale.

Below budget is perfectly fine! I was expecting a good 10 year old wine to start at around $100, so that was my starting point.

Looking in my cellar for 2010 vintage wines I have
Shiraz; - Rockford Basket Press, Grant Burge Meshach, Henschke Keyenton Euphonium, Penfolds St Henri, Cab Shiraz; - Penfolds Bin 389,

Cab Sauvignon;- Cullen Diana Madeline, Katnook Estate Odyssey,

Grenache blend Rockford Moppa Spring -

all would be nice and most would be in your budget

2010 as a very good year world wide. (Obviously more for some:D )

Penfolds 389, 128, St Henri. WA cab savs.

Practically any burgundy, Barolo, Vino Nobile, or Pinot from Oregon - fabulous year.

NZ Pinot but 2010 v hard to find,

I would also look at the bigger Dan Murphys most have a section for older wines, usually reds.

pricing for10 year old started from about $50 some younger 2013, were ove $100 but would have been nice to drink.
