This is a pretty blend of 75% cabernet sauvignon and 25% syrah with spice, tobacco and currant character. It’s full-bodied with compact, polished tannins. Drink or hold.

Loads of jammy blackberry and black cherry fruits as well as hints of chocolate and peppery herbs emerge from this purple/plum-hued 2017. Offering full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish, it’s another sexy, pleasure-bent effort from this team that can be drunk any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Full-bodied, flavors of blackberry reduction, fresh dark cherries and black plum sway on the palate with a firm structure and oaky essence, followed by flavors of cassis and currant that linger on the long finish.

Wine Spectator, May 2021
Structured, with a simmering backbone, framed by currant, black olive and crushed stone accents that build richness toward medium-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2029. — T.F.

A whiff of matchstick reduction quickly dissipated to reveal pure scents of blackberry, licorice and black olive tapenade. Very concentrated sweet/savory wine with lovely inner-mouth lift and spiciness (probably from the 67% new thick-staved barriques). Suave and fine-grained but needs time to reveal itself. Incidentally, I moved up my projected peak drinking planes for this wine as well as the Ovide and Roma as the wines mellowed considerably with 24 hours in the refrigerator--without losing their shape. (this bottling used to be a mixture of Jack's and River Rock vineyards, before Powerline was planted in 2012) -- Stephen Tanzer
