2017 FORTIS Cabernet Sauvignon – 96 points, James Suckling
The extremely dense, dark color of 2017 FORTIS comes from vines grafted to small-berry clones. This wine’s deep, complex aromas and flavors of ripe, jammy fruit—suggesting plum, blackberry and dark cherry—are layered with intriguing nuances of cedar box, wild mushrooms and tobacco leaf. Silky, supple tannins and balanced acidity frame the expansive flavors and lingering finish. The intensity of FORTIS complements full-flavored foods, such as prime rib, and complex cheeses, including 36-month-aged Gouda or Manchego.
2018 FORTIS Cabernet Sauvignon – not yet rated
The deep, dense color of 2018 FORTIS comes from vines grafted to small-berry clones. This wine’s layered, complex aromas and flavors of ripe fruit— suggesting plum, blackberry and dark cherry—are intriguing nuances of licorice, graphite, wild mushrooms and tobacco leaf. Silky, supple tannins and balanced acidity frame the long, lingering finish. If drinking within five years of the vintage, consider decanting the wine for thirty minutes before serving.
