95pts Wine Enthusiast
With a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a seriously structured wine. It is ripe with a shot of fine acidity and tannins that give the wine great shape and freshness. The structure is what will give this wine its longevity. Barrel Sample: 93-95

Dark tea leaves, bark, walnut shell and dark berries on the nose. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. The tannic impact will lessen in two or three years. Try in 2021.

Solid, with a tarry frame that melds into a core of plum and raspberry preserve flavors. Lively bay leaf and tobacco notes fill in on the finish, revealing a sanguine echo. Best from 2020 through 2027.
Very deep garnat red color. Delicate nose of light wood, toasted bread and berry jam. On the palate, the aromas are reproduced with a perfect balance and freshness. Lovely long finish.
