Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has a solid, plush frame and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.- LPB

On the palate, the wine is concentrated with layers of ripe, fleshy, sweet black raspberries, licorice and plums. Complex on the nose and palate, there is the perfect amount of lift giving all the layers of fruit life. The is a new level of quality for Fontenil.

Blueberry and raspberry notes with wood and earthy undertones. It is full-bodied with nice acidity and intense, creamy tannins. Beautiful, clean finish. Still tight, as it should be. Drink after 2023.

The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, the 35% new oak nicely integrated, and quite a structured finish. I suspect this is just beginning to close up for a period, but it is a very fine Fontenil that will age well in bottle. -- Neal Martin

Ripe, sexy, yet with good freshness and purity, it's a classic 2018 that's going to drink well in its youth but also evolve beautifully for 7-8 years or more.

Wine Spectator, March 2021
Black cherry and cassis notes are fresh and unencumbered in feel as they lead the way, carried by silky structure and infused with subtle minerality and a hint of anise through the finish. Drink now through 2030. – JM
