James Suckling Review
Very fine and linear backbone of fresh tannins hold together a balanced and refined cab. Plenty of black currant and hazelnut character that remains elegant. Better in 2018.
Wine Tasting Notes
The integrity of the grand old Monte Rosso vineyard shines through, keeping the intense fruit flavors - black cherry, wild blackberry - front and center, then bolstering it with just enough oak to add structure and interesting notes of spice. A touch of Cabernet Franc adds a subtle minerality, broadening the complex mix of flavors. This wine has the profile of a refined, old-vine Cabernet - sleek, stylish and alluring, with a plush texture and long expressive finish.
