93 points James Suckling-Very cabernet franc nose with currants, leaves and tobacco, following through to a medium-bodied palate with a very fluid and silky mouth-feel. The tannins are beautifully integrated, giving the delicious fruit a free run through the finish. Not a big wine, but extremely well crafted and fluid. Cabernet franc, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. From organically grown grapes. Delicious. Irresistible now.
93 points Wine Spectator-This red shows precision and focus to its black currant, black cherry, rosemary, bell pepper and iron aromas and flavors. Linear and intense, with fine equilibrium and a solid structure. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2030.
