Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91+ points
Blended of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2013 The Gimblett has a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and blackcurrants with a cedar and mocha undercurrent. Medium-bodied with a great intensity of ripe black berry flavors and good amount of oak still apparent, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing long with some spices coming though.

This blend of four Bordeaux varieties (40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot) is reasonably full in the mouth, with subdued aromas of blackberry and cola. Dark berry, earth and mocha flavors finish long and velvety. Drink now–2025.
