"Intense, concentrated and deep ruby-red, this wine offers complex aromas of red and black fruits, with spice and wild herb notes. In the mouth, the rich flavors are dense, yet elegant, harmonious and graceful, with sweet but firm tannins. With a long finish, this wine’s depth and structure will ensure an extraordinary evolution in bottle." —importer

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc
"Ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors pick up accents of rosemary, mineral and spice in this red. Concentrated and intense, fresh and focused, leaning toward black currant and cedar notes on the solid finish. Racy midpalate. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2030." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

"Wonderful aromas of freshly sliced coastal rosemary and currants follow through to a full body, with integrated tannins and a fine finish. This shows so much finesse and beauty. But there is a solid backbone of tannins and length. Reminds me of some of the underrated Sass of the 1980s such as 1982, 1983 or 1987. Try after 2018." —James Suckling

"Pristine aromas and flavours of cassis, violet, cedar and minty aromatic herbs. Round and ripe with some freshness of acidity. Interesting breadth of flavour. Fleshy, ripe and very good." —Decanter Magazine
