Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:
Brimming with expressive aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, violets, oak spice and a hint of graphite, the 2014 Chester-Kidder offers layers of depth and complexity. Its rich texture and firm yet refined tannins linger across a lengthy finish that showcases the vibrant character of this limited production wine.



Ratings & Reviews


94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"More cassis, cedary spice, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2015 Red Wine Chester Kidder. It's medium to full-bodied, beautifully complex, and layered, with more upfront charm and approachability than most 2015s. Nevertheless, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 15% Petit Verdot that spent a full 30 months in oak, hats off to winemaker Gilles Nicault for another terrific vintage for this wine." - Jeb Dunnuck (4/11/2019)

92+ Points - Vinous:
"Bright ruby-red. Claret-like aromas of dark raspberry, redcurrant and licorice. Penetrating and tightly wound, showing lovely violet lift to the flavors of red and black fruits and licorice. But this Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine is very backward today, still in need of time for its acidity to harmonize. Finishes with firm, building, oak-influenced tannins. Excellent potential here, but lay this one down. (14.9% alcohol) " Stephen Tanzer - (Nov 2018)

89 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Tightly wound but expressive, with polished black cherry, cinnamon and spiced tea accents that take on firm tannins toward the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Best after 2019. 1,995 cases made." - TF (Issue Web Only - 2019)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Vanilla, baking spice, cocoa and dark fruit aromas are followed by plump, ripe fruit and barrel flavors. Dry tannins back it up. The oak influence seems overweighted to the fruit that's in the glass, and the fruit a bit desiccated Sean P. Sullivan" - (8/1/2019)
