Lovely, smoky, mushroom-funk with ethereal violet perfume emanating from lemon madeleines. Perfect expression of cassis and blackberries and black cherry, touches of sweet tobacco reveal a jungle of verdant herbs. Amazing cab franc with the full spectrum of textures.

Decanted for 2 hours. Still big, no signs of fading. Did not drink enough before it was consumed to review properly, but seemed a touch sweet. — 2 days ago
Hazy purple glou-glou! Watermelon Jolly Rancher was the primary flavor, along with some strawberry, cherry, pomegranate, and just a hint of orange peel. A well-made wine that is easy to enjoy chilled or not. 100% Valdiguié. 3/12/23. — 6 months ago

Loved this. It paired well with sushi and Asian rice dishes, and was great just by itself. Slightly thick with a subtle sweetness. — 2 months ago

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon wafts up with a pretty bouquet, showing rosy florals, sage and crushed raspberries. It soothes the senses with the silkiest textures as a potent, red fruit wave washes across the palate. An herbal flourish lingers as this finishes peppery and lightly structured. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023) — 7 days ago
