TASTING NOTES

"Enticing aromas of crushed berries, blackcurrants, sweet tobacco, hot stones and licorice follow through to a full body, chewy and dusty tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A juicy and savory young 2016. Try after 2024." JamesSuckling.com

"Blended of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, the 2016 Duhart-Milon has a deep garnet-purple color and features plums preserves, wild blueberries and cassis scents with touches of violets and underbrush with a waft of tobacco. Medium-bodied and elegant, with a backbone of finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, it has a great core of perfumed black fruit, finishing on an earthy note."

"This is very vivid, with racy violet, cassis and plum aromas and flavors coursing through, laced with a mouthwatering anise note and leading to a long, focused finish. Displays a terrific iron underpinning. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,083 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Duhart-Milon is absolutely gorgeous. I am pleasantly surprised to see how much textural and weight the 2016 has gained over the course of its aging. Dark, ample and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2016 is positively striking. Black cherry, chocolate, cacao, licorice and new leather fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. The 2016 is an especially brooding Duhart that needs cellaring. Even so, it is impressive today." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2016 Duhart-Milon has a pure, well-defined bouquet of blackberry, briar and crushed stone aromas, all very focused and penetrating. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and perhaps more approachable than the Duharts of the past, more malleable in the mouth. Quite rich in style considering the property in question, yet there is wonderful salinity toward the caressing finish. Excellent. 13% alcohol." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Dark glowing crimson. Black pepper and intensity on the nose. Bone dry and enormous energy and savour. Real elegance and some majesty. Neat and well balanced. Bravo! Very much speaks of the vintage with its freshness and intensity." JancisRobinson.com
