Vinous 94 Points: “The 2017 The Anchor is rich, flamboyant and super-exotic. Crème de cassis, menthol, lavender and sweet spice all race out of the glass. This rich, sumptuous Cabernet is one of the many 2017s here that offer tremendous immediacy. It could use some time to soften, and yet there is good structure underneath. Blood orange, mint, sweet spice and rose petal overtones add dramatic lift on the finish.”

Winery Notes: “The anchor is a symbol of staying in place. Of being held fast. Though we long to be free and untethered, sometimes we need that sense of security – of being held to something and having something to hold on to. This one feels personal right now. There is weight to this wine. A sense of earth and forest floor, yet an airiness that hints of salinity and ocean breeze. It is dense and brooding with layers of cocoa and roasted plums, and firm tannins to keep it all contained. Not to go overboard on this, but the name is very fitting to this bottle, to this time and place. The wine is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot.”
