Score: 94 | January 7, 2022 | Natalie MacLean

Tarot 2018 is a supple, medium-plus-bodied red blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot with the balance in Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Lovely on the nose with ripe red berry, cherry, dark plum, cassis dried herbs, chocolate and toasty oak spice flavours silky on the palate. Tannins are fine-grained. Enjoy with striploin steaks from the grill. 1/7/22

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.
