Other Reviews....
60/20/15/5% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/malbec/petit verdot. The cabernet fruit was destemmed and crushed, the other varieties kept as whole berries. Matured 15 months in French barrel (40% new). A deep, bright crimson-purple hue. Essence of great cabernet with its core of blackcurrant and boysenberry fruit, as well as a complex assortment of cardamon, coriander seed, black tea and gentle, fresh tobacco leaf. Just as good on the detailed, layered and persistent palate. There is a coolness and restraint to the cassis fruit that builds, culminating in a long, chalky tannin finish. A complete and beautiful wine. Drink 2022 - 2035.

A red with ripe berry, walnut and tile aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full body. Juicy and flavorful. Chewy yet round tannins. Tangy. Better to open in two or three years. A blend of cabernet, merlot, malbec, and petit verdot. Try after 2024.
