James Suckling

Dark plums, dried herbs, ink, iodine, elderberries and the faintest touch of resin. Full body, ripe yet structured tannins and a chewy finish. Drink in 2020.

Wine Advocate

The 2016 Bolgheri is a mid-weight red wine with a pretty display of black cherry, plum and black currant aromas. There's plenty of ripe fruit to behold in this balanced but informal red blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine hits that sweet spot between quality and low pricing that makes it perfect for informal dinners at home or with a good movie on the screen.

Wine Spectator

A bright, elegant red, with nervous tannins buoying black currant, cherry, wild herb and earth flavors. Tips toward the tannins in the balance now, yet remains fresh and long. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2024.
