Aromas of black currant, cherry, dark plum and violets are balanced by notes of sage, fennel, olives, black tea and tobacco all layered over soft, fine-grained tannins.

The Tasting Panel
  • tp92

Red fruit is unleashed in a bath of violets and the perfume stays through the palate. High-toned acidity shows a youthfulness – but in a bold, mineral-driven expression. Graphite and leather waltz in mid-palate. Elegance reigns…and over-delivers in this red.

The star of the lineup is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s another well made, charming wine from this label that has plenty to recommend. Impressive notes of cassis, lead pencil, and graphite all give way to a medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has ripe tannin, some smoky oak, and a good finish. Aged 22 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak, drink it over the coming 4-5 years.

A light grilled herb note fades quickly in the face of blackberry and raspberry compote flavors, while the finish lets licorice and cinnamon details move through. Drink now through 2022.

Soft and slightly astringent, this straightforward wine is herbaceous in cedar and pencil shavings, its fruit tangy in currant.
