“Big and ripe, this wine balances the opulence of Merlot and the structure of Cabernet Franc. The wine is full of ripe, juicy black fruits that are underlined by the structure and tannin. With a fine future ahead of it, the wine will be ready in 2023. 92 points.” –Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 1, 2020
