James Suckling Review
Notes of blackberries, blueberries and spices on the nose. It's full-bodied with chewy tannins. Structured, with a lot of wood and a juicy character on the center-palate. Mineral and racy. Flavorful finish. A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 11% cabernet franc, 5% malbec and 5% petit verdot. Drink in 2024.
Wine Tasting Notes
Ferguson's flavor profile is distinctly influenced by its volcanic basalt soil. This massive wine offers complex aromas of espresso, tobacco, and dark mineral-laced fruit. Layers of wild blackberries and dusty tannins integrate with flavors of flint and graphite on the palate. Concentrated natural acidity leads to a robust and lingering finish.
