Full bright ruby. Sexy if somewhat funky aromas of cassis, black cherry, leather, mint and eucalyptus, lifted by a note of black pepper. Deep and vinous, with its dark berry and mint flavors joined by slightly rustic pepper and leather notes. More savory than sweet; not squeaky-clean but has the energy to support slow evolution in bottle. Finishes with rather suave tannins that turn a bit dusty with air, perhaps due to the wine's savory herbal element. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2019)

Drinking great. Notes of cassis with subtle eucalyptus. Much less eucalyptus than in earlier vintages. Smooth and silky tannins. I think this wine will provide the most drinking pleasure if consumed within the next 5 years.

Classic; so wonderful; just way to expensive...as it goes with Napa Cabernet.

Currant dominant, with strong acidic backbone. This wine needs some time, but shows a lot of potential.

Dried cherries. Pepper, cinnamon. Big mouthy fruit. A classic Martha’s Vineyard. Some sour palate. A great wine.
