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"

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."
