Description

Winemaker Notes
Luke Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas dominated by marionberry and dark chocolate, accented by hints of mint and molasses. Supple, focused and expressive, layering coffee-accented blackberry and currant flavors with polished tannins and hints of cedar and smoke.

Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec

Wine Spectator – 92 points
Shows presence and polish, with expressive blackberry, smoked spice and dusty cedar notes that take on structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Wine Enthusiast – 90 points
The aromas offer notes of espresso, vanilla, spice and cherry. The palate brings cherry and raspberry flavors. Grainy, slightly astringent tannins back it up. It’s a bit clenched at present and will only improve with some time in bottle. Give it a long decant if drinking in the near term.
