Wine Spectator Inside Weekly - MaryAnn Worobiec
2018 Les Amis
Elegant, sleek and polished, offering juicy framboise, maraschino cherry and raspberry flavors that show details of fresh mint, sage and tobacco, with appealing purity and transparency. Grenache. Drink now through 2035.
2018 The Pict
Wonderfully compelling, offering dense, sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and a core of blackberry and huckleberry, with notes of Sichuan peppercorn, sarsaparilla, chicory, forest floor and dried porcini mushroom that show a lingering sanguine touch. The muscular tannins and robust flavors bode well for cellaring. Mataro (Mourvèdre). Drink now through 2038../div>
2018 The Steading
Dense, aromatic and complex, with kirsch, dried cherry, white pepper, black tea and olive tapenade. Details of fresh earth, cedar, tobacco and dried violet linger on the long finish, with a note of fresh cardamom. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2037
