97 pts Platinum  2021 Decanter World Wine Awards

Intense cassis, graphite, eucalypt, and violets on the nose. A plush palate of fine-grained tannins with black plum, black cherry, and blackcurrant leaf character. Love the weightless concentration and supreme elegance. This is top drawer.

Improves on already exceptional 16 (93 pts). 75% new oak, 18 months.

93 pts Tim Atkin MW 2021

Evolving nicely in bottle, this is a stylish, textured quintet of Cabernet Sauvignon with 68% Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The 75% new wood is very well handled, framing smooth tannins, cassis, cut grass and red berry fruit and cool climate acidity.  2023-30
