WS 95
Wine Spectator, January 2019
(92-95 points) Warm and steeped in feel, with fig, blackberry and plum fruit notes, layered with tobacco and warm earth details. A strong showing. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now. - JM

(93-94) A wine with lovely depth of fruit and ripeness, yet always refined and integrated with ripe fruit, fresh acidity and a long and satisfying finish. Could be best ever.

It has strong liquorice flavours, with dark chocolate and grilled rosemary – it’s gourmet, but with restraint and juice though the dark cassis and blackberry fruits. Another wine where you feel there is an accessibility relatively young without sacrificing the ageing ability.

It should drink well for 10-12 years. The blend is 79% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Franc, all from a 21-acre parcel of darker, compact, iron-laced soils.

The medium to full-bodied palate is jam-packed with black fruit preserves and savory layers, framed by grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a minerally lift. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with a gentle touch of oak that rides along with the sweet, ripe, red cherries in the finish. This is much better in bottle than it showed in barrel.
