2018 Penedo Borges Icono Edicion Aniversario - 92 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plain"This has dark, chocolatey character with notes of black fruit, vanilla, pinewood and hazelnuts. Medium-to full-bodied, compact and a little tight with a firm texture and bright acidity. Layered. Needs time to open and soften. Cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec, cabernet sauvignon and syrah. Drink now."

tim atkin logo 250"It takes guts to call your wine an “icon”, just in case people don’t agree with you, but this fiveway assemblage of Cabernet Franc with 69% Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah is pretty impressive. Ginger spice and violet aromas segue into a palate of coffee bean and vanilla complemented by cassis and blueberry fruit. 2023-28"
