Blended with 23% Merlot and 1% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it exudes classic structure, integrated oak and floral beauty, finishing on a fig note. Enjoy from 2028–2032. VIRGINIE BOONE

Lots of purple fruit with raspberries and blackberries follow through to a medium to full body with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to soften. Try after 2023.

This creamy, expressive Cabernet is sure to delight readers pretty much upon release. It captures all the charm of the vintage in its gracious personality. Hints of spice, tobacco, dried herbs and mint linger. -- Antonio Galloni

It's medium to full-bodied, elegant, and nicely textured on the palate, with integrated tannins and a great finish.

The medium to full-bodied palate delivers lovely poise and expression with plenty of crunchy black fruit and a grainy texture, finishing with a lively lift.- LPB

Fleshy finish keeps the fruit pumping through nicely, with a light briar streak for cut. Drink now through 2030. 14,434 cases made. — JM
