2020 Château Capbern  (St. Estèphe) 93

Spicy, dark red berries, blackberry, savory herbs, cedar and cigar box open the nose. On the palate the wine is fleshy, rich, chewy and packed with ripe currants with peppery, savory herbs. There is length, freshness, complexity and character here. This a vineyard to keep an eye on as it getting better and better. The wine blends 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, 14.1% ABV. 92-94 Pts

2019 Château Capbern  (St. Estèphe) 93

Spicy black raspberries, cassis and blackberry fruits with just a touch of oak, wet earth and forest leaf aromas on the nose smell great. On the palate, the wine is lush, round and opulently textured, with length and purity in the fruits. Clearly, this is a new level for Capbern. The wine is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, reaching 15.1% alcohol. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château Capbern  (St. Estèphe) 92

Forest floor, tobacco leaf, wet earth, coffee bean, smoke, thyme and red currants open the wine. Medium-bodied, juicy, forward, bright and fresh, with a nice tangy note in the red currant finish, this is one of the better values in Left Bank Bordeaux todayl 92 Points

2016 Château Capbern  (St. Estèphe) 92

Blackberry, citrus, spice, earth and cassis provide the perfume for this potential first date. On the palate, the wine is fresh, vibrant, spicy, pure and yet another blast of citrus, which intrigues me. Fast forward to black fruits, chocolate and spice in the finish. 92 Points

Medium-bodied with a splash of tannin and a freshness of fruit on the mouth, this wine reveals dark, red fruits, espresso, herbs and olives. Made with a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and, for the first time, Petit Verdot was part of the mingle at 4%. Note, this is the second vintage with the, shortened name. 87 - 89 Pts
