97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Hosanna is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and sashays out of the glass with beautiful red rose and violets scents over a core of baked blueberries, mulberries and plum preserves plus wafts of vanilla pod and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed full of perfumed black and blue fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and fragrant.
96 Points - James Suckling
Very attractive aromas of violets, purple cherries and plums with notes of chocolate, cedar and baking spices. The palate has a fullish feel with very concentrated, ripe dark plums, wrapped in super long, silky tannins. Quite a deep, flavorful finish, holding long and fresh. Try from 2023.
92 Points - Wine Spectator
Caressing in feel, with hints of ganache and incense draped over a core of warmed plum and cassis flavors. The tobacco-infused finish features good flesh and length. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
