ACCOLADES

(97 - 99) pts | THE WINE ADVOCATE

“A barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 J. Daniel Cuvee opens with a vibrant nose of crushed black currants, black cherries with touches of dried herbs, tobacco, truffles, crushed rocks, charcoal and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied with a taut structure of very firm, very ripe tannins and packed with muscular fruit, it has a compelling savory/earthy character in the mouth, finishing long with lovely mineral accents." — Robert Parker, Jr. Wine Advocate

 

(94 - 97) pts | VINOUS

“A riveting, full-throttle wine, the 2016 J. Daniel Cuvee is a thrill a minute. Dark, powerful and pulsing with energy, the 2016 has all the potential to develop into a truly spectacular wine. Crushed rocks, game, smoke and licorice gradually open with time in the glass. Above all else, though, the 2016 is a wine of structural richness.”  — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
