Cedar, mint, tobacco and currants come to the front of the wine with ease. The medium-bodied palate is soft, chewy, and fresh, with a peppery edge to the red cherries, and currants in the finish. Give it a year or two in the bottle, and this should be quite nice. The wine is a blend of 55% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot. 13.5% ABV. Drink from 2027-2042. 90-92 Pts.

Nuances of smoke, chocolate and spice along with a bushel of ripe blackberries and currants offer up their fragrance with no effort. On the palate, the wine is even better with its layers of ripe, sweet, creamy, black and red fruits, olives and cocoa that hold your interest. This is going to be delicious with only a modicum of aging. Drink from 2024-2038.

Things keep getting better and better here and 2020 is no exception. The nose, with its spicy personality also shows forest leaf, tobacco, pepper, black and red fruits and earthy nuances. On the palate, the wine is rich, round and ripe. It's packed with sweet, fresh, polished, juicy red berries on the mid-palate and in the open, soft textured finish. Forward in style, this should drink quite well with just 3-4 years of aging. 92-94 Pts

Peppery red fruits, tobacco leaf, cedar and red currants get your attention. From there the mediu8m-bodied waves of ripe, juicy, crisp berries on the palate with their spicy overtone seals the deal. Give this classically styled wine 4-5 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 2 decades.
