James Suckling Review
Nice fruit definition to this wine with blueberry and blackberry aromas and some toasted oak. Medium-to full-bodied, creamy and balanced with chocolate and hazelnuts. Bright and vivid with just a touch of alcohol. Drinkable now, but better in a year or two.
Wine Tasting Notes
This is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties, which contributed layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gave the wine its generous core of briary blackberry and cassis expression, while we increased the amount of Merlot this year to tame the tannins and add plush mid-palate texture. Malbec contributed deep plum notes, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of rose, forest loam and graphite.
Highly rated for a reason, as I can now tell. The perfect amount of influence from each grape to work together and not subtract from the experience of every other grape. Deep, rich flavors that make the experience tall that much better. Highly recommended.
I LOVE this wine. its my favorite red. I have a glass any chance I get. I love its nice, rich flavor, and easy drinkability.
An excellent Red. My favourite from BV so far. This wine has a lot of depth. Dark berry flavours, good body, a little sweetness. Would recommend. Drinks very well.
