Robert Parker 98 Points: “Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 The Flight drifts sensuously out of the glass with the most gorgeous perfume of red roses, kirsch, black raspberries and fresh blackcurrants followed by hints of iron ore, tilled soil, lavender and star anise plus a touch of powdered cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a fantastically chiseled structure of ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness supporting the black fruit and floral layers, finishing with bags of minerals.”
Winery Notes: “The beauty of growing and making wine instinctually is that it allows one to see vintage purely reflected in the bottle, and this has been especially true of The Flight in recent vintages. The 2018 captures the quintessential elegance that only the world’s greatest merlot exhibits: complex layers of spice and red fruit, a perfect balance of power and freshness, fine tannins, and a texture reminiscent of satin.
