Blended from the best lots of the 1928 estate vineyards, this iconic small-batch blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot is powerful yet smooth.
The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but very suave wine with layers of ripe cherry, berry fruits, white pepper, mint, chocolate, caramel, smoke, and toast. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will certainly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist.
Try with smoked meats and charcuterie.
The oak feels nicely integrated, and the wine is serious, balanced and somewhat austere and combines power and elegance as usual. It's herbal and peppery, spicy with good ripeness and freshness.The Wine Advocate March 2021
Intense ripe-blackberry, chocolate and walnut aromas. Hints of dried fruit. Some figs, too. Full-bodied with polished tannins and a soft, creamy texture. Lovely already. Softer than the 2018. Better in a year or two.James Suckling April 2021
