Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #235 Feb 2018
The 2015 Sophia is a blend of 73% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc. Vanilla and cedar notes frame ample black cherry and cassis fruit on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate boasts supple, velvety tannins and a long, plush finish. One of the more approachable young Sophias, it drinks well now but should age well for at least 10 years.
92 pts Wine Spectator 10/15/18
Dense and juicy, featuring a mineral edge to the plum, cassis and blackberry flavors, with a dash of sarsaparilla. The tannins are firm and velvety, showing plenty of concentration. Toasted herb notes linger. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 900 cases made.



Winemaker Notes

Deep darkest red. Complex aromatic profile with notes of ripe plum, cassis, dried rose and spice from the finest French Oak. The wine exhibits a wonderful depth of dark red fruits whilst maintaining an enticing level of freshness across the palate. Layered, youthful and persistent, this is a classically composed wine.
