- Score: 91 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator Bay leaf and black tea aromas lead the way in this harmonious, medium- to full-bodied red, which offers a fine range of crème de cassis, Kalamata olive and fresh, loamy earth notes layered with creamy tannins that impart light grip to the spiced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2026. 3,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Missoni opens up to show rosy florals and blackberries with hints of wet concrete and camphor. Its velvety textures give way to a pure display of dark mineral-tinged fruits that, along with bright acidity, create a lifted impression. Hints of licorice, currants and powdered sugar linger over a layer of sweet tannins through the long, delicately structured finale. The 2019 is already showing quite well, but a year of cellaring will likely bring forward further depths. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

- Score: 86 Vintage 2017 James Suckling This is a rather jammy red with light sultanas and redcurrant confectionary and a touch of dusty wood. Appearing quite sweet on the palate, and the light herbaceous character really doesn’t help. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
