Notes from the Winemaker:
Bright red and deep blueberry aromas underpinned by soft cola and faint graphite notes hint at the complexity that one finds on the palate. The fruit is seamlessly integrated, and the wine is long and well structured in the mouth. 40% new French oak and 60% one-year-old oak makes for optimal respect of the fruit."



Ratings & Reviews

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A barrel sample of already blended 50% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Optimus has an earthy, broody nose of black soil, underbrush and tar with suggestions of black currants, anise and cloves. Full-bodied, rich and earthy, it offers up densely packed flavors and a very firm backbone with great promise!" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Sep 2017)
