Deep purple-black in color, it reveals an achingly beautiful nose of candied violets, lilacs and rose hip tea over a core of blackcurrant cordial, Black Forest cake and fresh wild blueberries plus touches of forest floor, tapenade, licorice and chocolate box. The palate is full-bodied and decadently fruited yet possesses bags of finesse, with a wonderfully plush, fine-grained texture and great vibrancy, finishing with epic length and depth.-LPB collapse

It offers a rocking bouquet of blackcurrants, ripe black cherries, graphite, charcoal, and spice. It's deep, rich, full-bodied, and tight on the palate, with plenty of mid-palate and fruit intensity. I love its balance as well. It's going to come together beautifully with 3-5 years of bottle age and cruise for two decades in cold cellars. collapse

Here, the clone 337 really comes through in the wine. Succulent black cherry, rose petal, lavender, plum, tobacco and spice all run through this powerful, unctuous Cabernet. The 2016 shows great balance and class; this is very, very good. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

The palate has impressive power and drive and carries plenty of ripe-plum and blackberry flavors. A blend of 84 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 11 per cent petit verdot and five per cent cabernet franc. Try from 2022. collapse
