94 Points Jeb Dunnuck ... Deeper coloured, the 2017 Arkenstone Estate Red offers a stunning bouquet of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, graphite and lead pencil shavings. This rich, powerful, concentrated wine has ripe tannins, a stacked mid-palate and a great, great finish. It's going to need 4-5 years of cellaring but will be long lived. The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Malbec and Merlot, all aged 22 months in new barrels.
