James Suckling

Aromas of black fruit, barbecued meat and ground spice. Medium-to-full-bodied with fine, slightly chewy tannins. Rich, with eucalyptus and herbal character. Well structured, with very good concentration. Best after 2024

Wine Spectator

Cool savory scents of mint and mocha lead in this suave cabernet from L’Ecole, sourced in part from their estate vineyards, Ferguson and Seven Hills. Its dark red fruits are marked by a cool tobacco savor, with plenty of tannin to pair a pork chop.

The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of coffee, spice, blackberry, dark chocolate and black cherry. The palate is full of dark fruit flavors, fuller around the edges, lighter in the middle. Lightly grainy tannins back it up, with it all showing the freshness of the vintage. Over time, there's a creaminess to the flavors that ups the appeal. Cocoa notes linger on the finish. It should have a long life ahead of it. Decant if drinking in the near term. Best after 2027, with a long life beyond that.
