Wine Advocate

93-95+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Nenin is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc... It is aging in French oak barriques, 45% new. Offering up an opaque purple-black color, aromas of plum preserves, fresh blueberries and boysenberries explode out of the glass, closely followed by a perfume wave of lilacs, star anise, Ceylon tea, eucalyptus and chocolate box. The full-bodied palate is at once rich and sensuous as well as bright and refreshing, with a compelling interplay between spiced, preserved black fruits with lively fresh-berry accents and a racy backbone. The tannins here and wonderfully plush, and it finishes on a lingering anise note. There's so much going on here and it all works together beautifully-a party in your mouth!" 6/20

Neil Martin

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2019 Nenin was picked from 14 September to 8 October and is matured in 45% new oak barrels. There is a splash more Cabernet Franc in the blend this year, 30%, which benefits this wine. It sports a very attractive nose that to my mind displays more delineation, more clarity than recent vintages. You could almost say that there is a lightness of touch, vivid red and blue fruit mixed with incense and blood orange. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and just the right amount of salinity. Aeration uncovers hidden spicy notes towards the sappy finish, leaving the mouth tingling after exit. This is an absolutely delightful, accomplished Nenin." 6/20

Antonio Galloni

93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2019 Nénin has turned out very well. A burst of red berry fruit, blood orange, mint, sweet spice and floral accents gives Nénin its effusive, charming personality. Best of all, the 2019 will be easy to drink pretty much upon release. All the elements are impeccably balanced throughout." 02/22
