Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Fontenil struts out of the glass with confident black plum preserves, black cherries and mulberries scents plus suggestions of underbrush, Indian spices, violets and mossy bark. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has a solid, plush frame and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This is so tight and polished with a degree of depth and beauty I have not seen for a while. Medium body and beautiful, silky tannins that buttress the lovely, focused fruit.

The 2018 Fontenil is a real standout. Sweet floral notes add brightness to a core of red berry and blood orange fruit. There is plenty of depth and overall texture, but at the same time the 2018 has a good bit of brightness as well. The 2018 is a gorgeous Fontenil. Tasted two times
