Its deep purple hue is followed by a rich, full-bodied, incredibly layered 2018 offering beautiful cassis and mulberry fruit, notes of tobacco, dried flowers, and chocolate, ultra-fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. This remarkable 2018 should be snatched up by readers, as it represents a smoking value!

A super intense and dense palate of blackberry with hints of chocolate. Full-bodied with density and purity. Long and powerful. Tight and reserved, but telling you it has so much there. Drink after 2024.

Inky dark fruit, mocha, gravel, spice, menthol and licorice are kicked up several notches in this potent, virile Franc. Time in the glass brings out the wine's floral and spice overtones along with distinctly red shades of fruit. There is a bit of oak influence, but the Franc handles it well while retaining quite a bit of varietal character. -- Antonio Galloni

Veeder was aged for 22 months in oak barrels, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose delivers fragrant, perfumed notes of black and red cherries, mulberries and black raspberries with hints of lavender, pencil shavings and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, the decadently fruited palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins framing the black fruit, red berry and floral layers, finishing long and graceful. 506 cases were made.- LPB
