Wine Guide 2017

A blend of most of the red Bordeaux varieties. Strikingly complex aromas of spices and dark berry with a cedary oak influence. The palate is soft and generous with an earthy dusty feature. Black olive and leafy nuances bring another level of complexity to a well-crafted wine. CELLAR 7 years

Ken Gargett

A 65/35 blend which has seen considerable time in the cellar. This is their first aged release and a nice start to what will hopefully be an on-going series. 40% barrel ferment and two months in new French oak. This is a much more moderated and complex style than the young wines. Some herbal notes, florals. Mid-length. A drink-now style that has aged well. Given it is only five bucks more than the current release, the smart money goes here. Score: 89/100 Best drinking: now. Alc: 13%
