2014 Futo Oakville Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1334725 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The beauty and sincerity of this wine is so mesmerizing. Floral, blueberry and blackberry flavors as well as violets. Medium-to full-bodied, soft and silky. Refined and beautiful. A balanced and ethereal wine. Sneaks up on you. Hard not to drink now. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Oakville Proprietary Red is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. This is a fabulous effort as well, more sexy and up-front than the 2013 at the moment, with gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, graphite and subtle background wood smoke. Opulent and voluptuous, with terrific ripeness, density and a layered mouthfeel, this is a killer wine to drink over the next 25-30 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

95-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Futo is surprisingly soft, open and creamy for such a young wine. Then again, that is the magic that makes many of the wines from this part of Oakville so sensual and appealing. Here, too, the Cabernet Franc plays an important role in shaping the wine's aromatic profile. An exotic mélange of dark cherry, mocha, spice, espresso and tobacco infuse the racy finish. The new oak is still a bit present, which is a small indication that perhaps in 2014 the 5500 has just a bit better balance than the Futo. Still, there is plenty to like and admire in the Futo. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
