97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Gorgeous notes of cassis and ripe black cherry fruits as well as leafy herbs, forest floor, iron, tobacco, and spice all soar from the glass, and this head-turning beauty is full-bodied, with a seamless texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great, great finish. It's one of the finest wines I've ever tasted from Ben Smith and should be snatched up by readers! It's going to keep for 15+ years or more. Wow."
Definitely, hands-down the best vintage of Bel Canto. Aromatically wonderful and just like Camerata, so silky and pure. When Jeb mentions the great, great finish, he means it–it sails and sails. 73% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot -Marcus
