The Tasting Panel: 95 Points
"With 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot blended in, this Cab exudes a plethora of floral notes, with dried violets and earth in the forefront. Bold, elegantly appointed and generously built, its grand presence shows off graphite and espresso integrated with teeth-coating plum skin tannins. Aged 20 months in 50% new French oak." - Tasting Panel
Wine Advocate: 92 Points
Classic Beau Vigne single vineyard 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot. The 2018 is an intense ruby red color and the concentration is almost impenetrable. Bouquet of berry spice dominated by blackberry. The palate is decided, with stylish, velvety tannins, accompanied by a long finish with toasty cedar tones.
