Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Carbonnieux leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of baked blackberries, warm cassis, preserved plum and lavender with touches of Indian spices, forest floor and dried sage. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, the generous fruit has loads of bright, vibrant sparks plus a great line of freshness, finishing mineral tinged. - Robert Parker

Right off the first nose you just want to sink right into this wine. It's a clear success in this vintage: delicious, with a great texture and a slight bitterness on the finish perfectly balanced by the sweet ripeness of the fruit. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Wine Spectator

The velvet tannins and spicy, smoky character of this wine reveals both its ripeness and its fine structure. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is dense with black fruits that are lifted by attractive acidity.
