Essence of brambly wild berries are the first impression on the nose. A silky soft palate entry with a well-knit tannin structure, supple yet with form and substance. This wine evolves in the glass from subtle fruit aromatics to ever evolving notes of cedar, plum, allspice and black currant.
"An inviting, herbaceous nose of thyme and sage with notes of black cherries and plums as well. Medium-to full-bodied with sandy tannins. Really clean, with bright red fruit shifting into more savory, dark-chocolate and leather character. Rather well done. Drink now."

"Each component of this rich small-production blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Malbec fermented and aged separately; they were then blended after 12 months. It's highlighted by lush, sumptuous, violet-kissed black fruit as well as notes of leather, chocolate, and white pepper."

"This is a blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Tones of clove, cassis and blackberry jam carry the effusive palate, with a floral accent adding lift. - VIRGINIE BOONE"

"Blackberries, roasted herbs, violets, and a touch of crushed stone-like minerality emerge from the 2015 Henry's Blend, a rounded, nicely textured, delicious effort. With good acidiay and moderate tannins, it should evolve for 7-8 years, if not longer."

"Youthful, rich and chewy with notes of blackcurrant, black olive, black plum, vanilla and espresso. Age or aerate to soften the texture. - Catherine Fallis MS"

"A Bordeaux-style blend of all five classic red varieties (the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot playing nearly equal roles) this wine is tart in blackberry, cranberry, dark cherry and cassis, with firm, youthful tannins supporting the fruit. Softly intense, it offers balanced acidity and integrated oak."

"Blended from all five Bordeaux varieties, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot almost equal in proportion, this is a lovely, well-crafted wine, softly concentrated with highlights of licorice, lavender, violets and black pepper. From three ranches farmed by the family, it's both seamless and structured."

"A classic interpretation of a red Bordeaux blend, this holds almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, in addition to smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The wine offers mint, sage and cedar that give a brushy quality around blackberry and cassis. With a juicy core, it's complex and lengthy, the oak subdued."
