Very ripe blueberries here, married to delicate, smoky-oak and baking-spice character. Concentrated and succulent with a wonderful, mineral freshness at the long, energetic finish. A very flexible food-wine. Drink or hold.

The 2016 Plince is a blend of 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Franc. It has a medium garnet-purple color and offers up scents of red and black currants, black cherries and mulberries with scorched earth, bay leaves and iron ore nuances plus a hint of violets. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with energetic red and black fruits, textured with ripe, rounded tannins and loads of freshness, finishing on a compelling mineral note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
This 21-acre vineyard has produced a firmly structured wine with severe tannins that will take time to soften. The fruits along with acidity are still developing and will give an attractive wine from 2022.

The 2016 Plince is a soft, fruity wine. Plump, juicy and inviting, the 2016 offers plenty of immediacy. The 2016 is not especially complex, but it is quite delicious.

The 2016 is not especially complex, but it is quite delicious. Some of the slightly awkward notes I saw en primeur have resolved themselves during élevage. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later. -- Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectator, January 2019
This has an alluring profile, with dark plum, fig and blackberry fruit melded with mulling spice, black tea and incense notes. The silky finish lets everything drape easily. Drink now through 2028. 4,100 cases made.–JM
