Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 49% Syrah, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, the deep ruby colored 2017 Optimus opens with aromas of fresh fruits--wild blackberries, crushed blueberries and sour cherries--along with loamy earth, touches of cured meats, saline and olives, very fresh and crunchy on the nose. Medium to full-bodied and silky, it has great intensity and interplay of red, black and blue fruits with spices and savory touches. It has a very classy frame of finely pixelated tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and lifted. This shows excellent restraint! It's drinking beautifully now but will reward another 3-5 years in the cellar.
