THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Flowers, cherries, espresso, and licorice form the core of this wine. Medium-bodied, soft, round, fresh, and sweet, with a refreshing, mint-leaf accent in the finish, this is going to be easy to enjoy on release. The wine blends 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. For those keeping track, this was the first wine to be released in the 2022 futures campaign. Drink from 2025-2037."
DECANTER: "Juicy and bright, clearly quite tannic giving a graphite, chalky and creamy texture, but a generous push of fruit from start to finish. Concentrated but well worked, clean and direct, focussed with purity. Excellent acidity really gives the freshness and life, with the tannins giving some tension and restriction right now but this feels well worked and will be nice once it has softened a bit. HVE certified."
