Black cherries, chocolate, flowers, and espresso form the character here. The medium-bodied palate is round, chewy, and loaded with black cherries, peppery spice, dark chocolate, espresso, and crisp red currants. Bright, and chewy in the finish, give it a few years in the bottle and it promises to be even better. The wine blends 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. 14 ABV. Drink from 2027-2039. 90-92 Pts.

It takes just a bit of swirling to find all of the green apples, orange rind, guava, pineapple, mango and white peaches in the nose and palate. Long, electric, fresh and delicious, this racy gem keeps on going long after the wine has left the glass. This could be the best white wine produced in the history of Couhins. Drink from 2024--2032.

Because the wine is produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, you find a lot of bright acidity that adds to the blast of green apples, lemons, oranges, grapefruits and yellow plums. Juicy, creamy, fresh and lifted at the end, this is a fabulous, white Bordeaux. Drink from 2023-2035.

Ripe, elegant, soft, smoky, medium-bodied fruits with a nice sense of lift and refinement on the palate which carries through to the cigar box tinged finish. This is much nicer in bottle than in barrel.

Creamy, lush, round and fruity, with sweet yellow citrus, pineapple, mango and other tropical nuances. Juicy and refreshing, this is showing really well and should get even better with a few years of age.

Soft, fresh red fruits, wafts of tobacco and smoke work perfectly with this medium bodied, elegant style. It will not only be enchanting upon release but it can age for a decade as well.

Bright, crisp, fresh and stony, the wine is packed with a trifecta of lemons, oranges and limes. Equally crisp and refreshing on the palate, this should age nicely, yet if you want a jolt of sweet, juicy citrus, it's nice young too.

Leafy, olive and cedar notes crowd out most of the red fruits. The finish is salty, with bright red berries in the end note. This requires consumption sooner than later.

You can see the age in the color, but the nose continues delivering flowers, honey and citrus. The fruit leans to the orange and yellow citrus side. There is still freshness and sweet lemons in the finish. This has aged nicely.
