Critic's Rating 91 pts

Merlot 48% , Cabernet Sauvignon 38% , Cabernet Franc 16%

Tasting Notes: An approachable take on the 2020 vintage. Aromas of baking spice, black fruit & cedar leap out of the glass. With the palate bursting with ripe fruit like blackberry & forest floor. You will be delighted to find firm structure and a dry finish on this wine.

Food Pairing: Grill up some fresh ground chuck smashing burgers, halloumi patties, or beef/veggie kebabs - Dream 2020 is the perfect pairing!

Winemaker Notes: Experience the perfect balance of French and American oak aging with Dream 2020. This wine was carefully harvested in November to bring out its unique flavor, and then aged for 19 months for a smooth finish.
