The surreal packaging of this wine with its baroque bottle and kissing heads suggest something very unique. Indeed. It shows balance and pleasure with black currant, spice and cedar undertones. Give it three or four years and see the love.
The Surrealist Reviews
Beautifully crafted, offering the vibrant presence of a barrel sample, this is rich, dense and opulent, with stylish, jazzy mocha-and espresso-scented oak extending the dark berry, licorice, road tar and savory underbrush flavors. Ends with chewy tannins that end a sense of elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. — J.L.
The most expensive cuvée is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon JCB Surrealist, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville and 25% Petit Verdot. There are 181 cases of this wine, which was aged 19 months in 55% new French oak before being bottled unfiltered. This is a gorgeous, sensual wine with an opaque purple color and a beautiful, sweet kiss of blackberry liqueur intermixed with crème de cassis, violets and subtle spice. The wine has a terrific texture, genuine opulence and wonderful palate presence. Drink it over the next two decades.
