Tasting Notes

Neal Martin, vinous.com 88-90/100
The 2020 Capbern has a delineated, earthy nose with predominantly black fruit and light estuarine scents, although it needs a little more intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a tannic, slightly austere opening, saline and lightly spiced with a pleasant bitter edge towards the finish. Maybe a little short? It should fill out during its élevage so let's see if it just gains persistence then. 2025 - 2033.

James Lawther MW, JancisRobinson.com 17/20
Dense but vibrant and aromatic. Plenty of crunchy fruit and freshness. Bigger structure than 2019, closer to 2018, the tannins firm and textured. Dry, persistent finish. One for the cellar. Should be GV. 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.(JL) 14.1% Drink 2027 - 2040

Michael Schuster, The World of Fine Wine 89-91/100
A nose that is above all mineral; full, fresh to vital in acidity, fine in tannin, a lovely balance; sweet cassis-cored to taste, crisply defined by its Cabernet acidity, intense yet restrained, particularly refined, and fresh in the 'hot-year' context, and with lovely length. Likely to be very good value. (69% CS, 29% M, 1% CF, 1% PV; 35hl/ha; 14.1% ABV; 60% new) Drink 2025-35+.
