Winemaker's Notes

A powerful, well-structured, and rich wine, reflecting all the elegance of the terroir.

Critical Acclaim

"The Cathiards have made a polished wine with generous fruit. It manages to combine a modern, rich style with a lightness of touch and freshness of fruit which make it instantly attractive."
93 Points

"Good full ruby. Roasted red and black fruits, smoke and licorice on the nose. Powerful, even a bit aggressive, with less sweetness and subtlety than the subsequent vintages. Finishes with big, chewy, ripe tannins and lingering notes of tobacco and leather. Very Graves in style. This appears to be in the process of shutting down in the bottle.

Rating: 90+ Points"
90 Points

"This wine begins with a delicious nose of plums, berries, and hints of toasted oak on the nose. On the palate it is full-bodied and round, with some good fruit and a soft finish with lots of chocolate. This is ready, pull the cork soon."
90 Points

"Deep red, mature rim, concentrated slightly 'gamey' fruit, good earthy ripeness, fleshy and smooth, ready now. Drink up to 2018. "
