"The 2018 Secret Blend is composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. The nose is a little closed to begin, offering glimpses at broody charcoal, fertile loam and truffle-inspired scents over a core of cassis, black plums and boysenberries with hints of lilacs, Indian spices and Provence herbs. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy texture and bags of freshness, finishing long and spicy. Drink 2021-2038. Score - 93+.
