Wine SpectatorVanilla-laced black cherry and black pepper flavors are plump, fresh and lively, with cedar and spice notes lingering on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2027. 6,172 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThere's plenty of oak on this full-bodied Bordeaux blend in the form of cedar spice, dusting polish and Dr. Pepper, but it's balanced by juicy blackberries, florals, and the signature Gimblett Gravels stoniness. Lively acidity lifts the powerful, grainy tannins out of broody beast territory. This should age nicely to boot. Drink now-2027.
