Secret Indulgence Reviews

Score: 93 | February 16, 2023 | Jeb Dunnuck

Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Tarot comes from a mix of valley floor sites and was raised in mostly neutral French oak. It's a smoking value and offers lots of sweet red and black fruits, notes of herbes de Provence and spice, medium body, ripe, soft tannins, and outstanding length. It's not going to make terribly old bones, but this beauty will put a smile on your face any time over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Le Duc Noir has a Burgundian vibe as well as classy leather, red fruit, and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied, elegant, and silky on the palate, with lots of character. This cuvée comes from a handful of sites on the Sonoma Coast and was brought up in 15% new French oak.

The 2018 Chronology checks in as a mix of mostly Petite Sirah, Syrah, Merlot, Grenache, and Malbec, yet has small amounts of other red varieties. Beautiful blue fruits, violets, spice, and some earthy, herbal notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, undeniably delicious red. I’d drink bottles in their youth, but it should keep for at 3-5 years.
