Showing better from bottle than barrel, the 2013 Seventeen Forty Reserve is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, all of which saw 20 months in 70% new French oak. It's an elegant, seamless wine that has top tier purity, fine, fine tannin and classy notes of spring flowers, underbrush, cassis, sweet oak and licorice. Like the other 2013s here, it has the purity and texture to shine in its youth, yet it should age gracefully. - Jeb Dunnuck

Sporting a cépage that recalls the St. Emilion bottlings of Bordeaux’s right bank, but positively brimming with the ripe, wonderfully concentrated fruit of its local home, this fleshy, full-bodied wine earns kudos for both its depth and abiding richness. Although in some ways quite showy now, it has a tremendous sense of reserve and untapped potential, and its combination of exemplary structure and brooding strength is sufficient assurance that, while it will be approachable in a half- dozen or so years, it will continue to unfold and reveal more well into its second decade.

Inky ruby. Vibrant blackberry, cherry-vanilla and incense aromas are complemented by candied licorice, pipe tobacco and smoky minerals. Plush, palate-coating dark berry preserve and vanilla flavors are energized by a jolt... Inky ruby. Vibrant blackberry, cherry-vanilla and incense aromas are complemented by candied licorice, pipe tobacco and smoky minerals. Plush, palate-coating dark berry preserve and vanilla flavors are energized by a jolt of peppery spices. Shows very good finishing clarity and cut, with gentle tannins adding shape and focus. - Josh Raynolds
