Carbonic bite will offset some of that sweetness.

A 1010 final gravity is pretty good. Don’t confuse raspberry flavoring with “sweet”. It will subside as the beer matures. I’d say give it a couple more days and then bottle.

Pretty much covers what I was going to say.

Is 1.010 the anticipated or measured FG? If measured, give it two days and make sure it hasn't changed then bottle it.
