Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry gives up crème de cassis, baked plums, blueberry compote, chocolate box, earth and aniseed scents on the nose with wafts of cedar chest and pencil lead. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it is concentrated, very classy and multilayered with great energy and a long finish.--The Wine Advocate,  RobertParker.com #245, 10/2019

Winery Notes: The fascinatingly mosaic 2017 Poetry possesses a deep garnet color and is front- loaded with crushed black currants, warm slate, violets and Luxardo cherry aromas. Elegant and lithe flavors composed of fruitcake, bone broth, earthy truffle, and vanilla bean intermix with black cardamom and cumin spices. An extraordinarily velvety texture pulses with notes of rainier cherry, espresso roast, molasses, paprika, and hoisin. The remarkable finish is layered with unsmoked cigar, new cast iron, and melted black licorice aromas. This is a triumph of the vintage and should age gracefully for 20+ years or more.--Cliff Lede Vineyards
