The full, rich, seductive palate provides layer upon layer of perfumed black fruits and spicy nuances with a firm yet soft frame and oodles of freshness to lift the long finish. Beautifully done.- LPB collapse

Dark garnet in color, the wine is sensuality and elegance. More unctuous than usual, the velvet textured black plums that coat your palate really hang in there. Even though the wine reached 15.2% alcohol, there is only a slight touch of heat in the finish but there is no sensation of jamminess. The wine was made using 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc harvested from September 20-October 8.

This wine has a deep purple-black hue and it combines the elegance of 2016 and gourmandise of 2015. It's splendidly aromatic with blueberry, spice and violet notes; the fruit bright and distinct. Concentrated and intense on the palate, the tannins are finely woven, offering a texture that is velvety and smooth, alongside well integrated oak. There is great precision and length. Produced from a yield of 41.1hl/ha. collapse

(93-94 points) This is very reserved with blueberry, cedar and shaved-chocolate character. Medium to full body and firm, lightly chewy tannins that are polished and pretty. Energetic finish at the end.

It offers ripe dark cherry and boysenberry fruit on the nose with light floral tones - no excess here with commendable delineation. The palate is rounded and honeyed in texture on the opening, a powerful Quintus with layers of toasty red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and sous-bois, quite luxurious towards the finish where it is difficult to detect the 15.2% alcohol. Give it five years in bottle. -- Neal Martin collapse
