2019 Lightning Bolt | 97 PointsJan 2022The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lightning Bolt is a blend of the four best barrels in the cellar. Deep, inky and plush, the 2019 offers up an exciting mélange of dark cherry, plum, spice, chocolate and new leather. This plush, layered Cabernet opens up beautifully with a bit of time in the glass. There is an effortlessness to the 2019 that is so alluring. — Antonio Galloni

Press & Reviews
2019 Master Boutellier | 93 PointsNov 2021This is fresh and lively with fine tannins and lively sensibility. Medium-bodied with lovely savory character. Nice bones to this. Crisp finish. Easy drinkability. Drink now. — James Suckling
2019 Les Bouquinistes | 93 PointsNov 2021Firmness and brightness to this, with blackberry, spice, and black fruit. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and a juicy finish. Savory in the center-palate. A field-blend of petite sirah, merlot, syrah, cabernet franc, malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold. — James Suckling
2019 Lightning Bolt | 96 PointsNov 2021Lovely richness and depth with round, velvety tannins and a dusty texture. Medium-to full-bodied and savory, with a refined texture and good length. Just a touch of vanilla. This will really improve with another year or two in bottle. — James Suckling
2019 Cabernet Sauvignon | 94 PointsJan 2022The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the year in its exuberant fruit and overall energy. Raspberry jam, spice, new leather and blood orange build with a bit of aeration, all framed by grippy, insistent tannins that need time to soften. This heady, potent Cabernet has a ton to offer. — Antonio Galloni
2019 Cuvee 37.2 | 94 PointsJan 2022The 2019 Merlot Cuvee 37.2 is once again one of the highlights in this range from Coup de Foudre and winemaker Kent Jarman. Racy and exuberant to the core, the 37.2 offers up copious black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and licorice. The heady, plush style is both immediate and alluring. — Antonio Galloni
