2020 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon - 92 PTS - GOLD - BTI

2020 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon - 92 PTS - GOLD - BTI

bti gold 2022"Violet color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate covered berries, mocha nuts, and purple flowers with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, interesting, medium-long finish displaying accents of chocolate orange peels, berry chutney on raisin toast, and spiced nuts with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A juicy, chewy, fruit-forward Cabernet that is sure to please."

2014 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The 2014 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon shows the Cabernet's more chocolaty, tobacco leaf and black and red currant side and has a similar color to its stable mates. The wine boasts loads of fruit, good texture and length. All of these wines probably have more aging potential than I would risk, but they are clearly meant to be drunk when released, and no doubt will hold onto their fruity intensity for several years, if not longer."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (March 2016), 88 pts - Excellent Wine Values for Under $25
