Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=93) Ripe cherry, stewed blackberry, nutmeg, cedar, and black olive on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with sleek, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Flavorful. Try from 2022.
(RP=92) Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 la Louviere leaps from the glass with notions of redcurrant jelly, fresh blackberries, and warm black plums, plus nuances of dried mint, cedar chest, and ground cloves. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and savory in the mouth, featuring a light touch of finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a compelling red berry lift. It's an elegant, lively expression of this vintage and one that really works!.
(WS=92) Nicely packed, with a mix of red and black cherry paste, singed mesquite, and red licorice notes, all carried by a lively, brambly savory-tinged finish. Lots to like here. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2031. 10,000 cases made.
