Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2018 possesses remarkable depth and harmony. Rose petal, sage, mint and cinnamon complement the red berry fruit. The 2018 is such a distinctive wine. It can be enjoyed now, but readers who can cellar it will be in for a treat down the line. If opened young, a few hours of air does wonders in releasing all of the wine's fruit and structure. Dollops of Cabernet Franc round out the blend. The Merlot was aged in cask, while the Franc components were aged in barrel. Total time in oak was about 22 months. -- Antonio Galloni

Chalky tannin and earthy iron, dried herb and violet accent beautiful layers of raspberry and plum. Built to age, enjoy best from 2028–2038. VIRGINIE BOONE
