Warm, mellow and a little balsamic, but there’s a lot of richness and some serious tannins in here. The finish packs quite a punch. Tangy and spicy. Love it now, but this will age beautifully.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

This has a good mix of black cherry and cassis flavors, with a tarry spine giving the finish energy. Should be solid.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

Ripe and fresh, showing a nicely focused set of red currant and bitter plum notes racing along with light bay, savory and iron flavors. A dash of cedar on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2022. 13,400 cases made.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2014 La Garde is a deep, powerful wine. Black cherry, smoke, licorice, herb and earth tones contribute to its virile, brooding personality. The wine comes across as somewhat unyielding and less generous than it did as a young wine from barrel. It will be interesting to see if the 2014 develops a bit more charm in bottle. Today, it is a bit of a bruiser. 88+

Jeannie Cho Lee MW - Asian Palate

Elegant, medium-bodied La Garde with layers of dark fruits, savory herbs and spices. Well made in this vintage with potential to age and evolve over the next 5 to 7 years.

Extrem dunkles Purpur mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Geniales Bouquet, voll von Brombeeren, Black Currant und milchig-füllige Konturen. Im Gaumen mit Fülle und Eleganz, das Extrakt hat einen schönen Nerv und der Wein endet mit Lakritze im sehr aromatischen Finale. 17/20 2024 – 2040 17/20
