The Wine Advocate’s early sampling had the reviewer floored: “I’ve never smelled anything like this – it's like staring into a well of archetypal Cabernet Sauvignon... the satiny palate spreads its glorious flavor wings with unbelievable melting tannins... this is unreal!” Praise like that is enough to pique our interest in any wine.

Wine Advocate

The 2018 Caves des Lions is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc, expected to age 28 months in 100% new French oak. It has a deep ruby-purple color and deep scents of rose petals, cured meats, tobacco leaves and cedar over a core of pure, crushed blackcurrants with loads of exotic perfume. The full-bodied palate is firm and very finely grained with full, ripe flavors and just enough freshness, finishing very long and layered.
