Smooth edges of tannin and oak melt away on the succulent palate, allowing layers of plum, berry and dark chocolate to impress. - VIRGINIE BOONE collapse

Sporting a deep purple hue as well as classy notes of black plums, blackcurrants, graphite, damp earth, and roasted herbs, it's rich, medium to full-bodied, has good acidity, building tannins, and a chalky minerality on the finish. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and it will keep for 20 years or more. collapse

Super-ripe red cherry, mint, cedar, tobacco, spice and star anise give this wine striking exoticism and tons of character. Pliant and inviting, the 2017 is impeccably balanced. Best of all, it will drink well upon release. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Deep purple-black colored, it has pronounced black currant pastilles, black cherry compote and red currant preserves notes with touches of dried herbs, unsmoked cigars and fallen leaves plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm texture of grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the muscular black fruit, finishing with an herbal lift.- LPB collapse

A soft and delicious red with aromas and flavors of currants, blackberries and light vanilla. Medium-bodied, pretty and flavorful. Caressing and lovely. 95.5% cabernet Sauvignon, with petit verdot and malbec. Drink or hold.

A dark humus element underlines the finish, giving this an old-school hint. Best from 2022 through 2032. —J.M. collapse
