Force Majeure Parabellum Alluvio Red Blend 2017

Continue Shopping or Checkout

A fantastic red blend which opens with a wonderful savory-spicy nose before showing its creamy texture and density, loaded with yummy blue and electric dark red fruits. Delicious for drinking now or in 5-8 years. 60% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot. 


95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Bordeaux side of the Parabellum series, the 2017 Parabellum Alluvio is based on 60% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the final 7% Petit Verdot. This deep ruby/plum-hued effort offers lots of chocolate laced red and black fruits, smoked earth, tobacco leaf, and truffle notes. Full-bodied, rich, and nicely textured, it has some background oak that should integrate with 3-4 years of bottle age, and it’s going to have a 15-year or longer drink window."

93 points Vinous: "Pungent Cabernet Franc high notes of violet and tropical bitter chocolate lift black fruits and graphite on the nose. Thick and plush but also sappy on the palate; a very rich but classically dry, ripe style with terrific density and good mineral definition to its black cherry, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors. But still quite youthful and primary, and a touch inky toward the back. Finishes with serious dusty but fairly fine tannins, juicy slow-mounting length and surprising grip. The wine's dominant Cabernet Franc component really expresses itself here."
