Ratings & Reviews
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This rich wine is already smoothly textured yet still has fine tannins that give aging potential. With its black fruit and acidity, it's ripe, smoky and likely to be very drinkable from 2020." - Roger Voss (December 2017)
"The 2015 Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux is a step up in price and is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 30% new French oak. It’s a more serious, structured red and offers ample black cherry, licorice, and earthy notes, with plenty of background oak. Balanced, medium to full-bodied, and textured, give it a year and enjoy over the following 7-8." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 27th 2019)
