‘The 2014 Series C is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 6% Cabernet Franc, matured in 70% new French oak for 22 months. Deep in color, in my opinion it has a superior bouquet compared to the Series M this vintage: very well defined with gorgeous black cherry and blueberry fruit, the oak seamlessly integrated even though it will need 3-4 years to fully integrate. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and velvety in texture with finely tuned acidity, nicely poised and gently fanning out with a fresh blackberry and bilberry finish, white pepper and clove lingering on the aftertaste. This is one of the most refined vintages of Series C that I have tasted. 2020-2040’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100

‘Series c rewards with immediate complex aromas of warm cocoa, toasted bread and blackberry jelly; denser than just primary fruit. The wine is layered with concentrated bright, ripe black fruit. It displays weight and density of flavour on the palate without heaviness or heft and with a long intense fruit finish. Compact and refined, series c is immensely harmonious with a sense of the explosion of flavor to come.’ – Winemaker
