\nDeep, dark, black oil with touches of mauve on the rim. Beautiful nose of spices and flowers, such as thyme and lilacs with a touch of roses, dark chocolate cherries and gingerbread. On the palate, fresh, fruity entrance evolving on granular integrated tannins lingering on juicy fruit such as black currant, plum and boysenberries.
JS94 - James Suckling
Blackcurrants and blueberries with hints of flowers and chocolate. Full body and a round, juicy mouthfeel. Flavorful finish. Needs a year or two to come together. A Bordeaux blend. Better after 2022.
WE93 - Wine Enthusiast
This blends 73% Cabernet Sauvignon with 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Together, they find harmony in grippy black fruit, viscous thick tannin and pronounced oak. Leather, sage and peppercorn round out the savory elements of intrigue and flavor.
