This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine was aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak before bottling. Needing an hour in the decanter to be fully aroused, this opens with anise and dark licorice with mocha and shades of violets that all mingle aromatically. The palate shows a silky mouthfeel with velvety tannins that frame a massive core of dark fruit flavors with espresso bean and dark chocolate undertones. Gorgeous to enjoy in its youth, this has another twenty years ahead of it. Drink 2020-2038- 95 — 3 months ago

The 2017 ‘Component Collection’ Malbec shows bright violets with blackberry compote and white pepper dusted mocha tones alongside scorched earth that all take shape in the glass. The palate is plush showing a gorgeous sense of richness and complexity. Blueberry cordial and Black Forest Cake flavors march on parade with espresso bean and dark currants on the palate. The length here is really good, as this beautiful and decadent Malbec wine will provide drinking enjoyment for the next fifteen years. Drink 2021-2036- 94 — 3 months ago
