After 23 years of crafting wines from the estate’s Diamondback Vineyard on Black Sage Bench and Tinhorn Creek Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench, Tinhorn finally has its flagship red wine: The Creek. And it was well worth waiting for. It’s a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot that was pressed and racked to 40% new French and Hungarian oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing. The wines were racked to tank for blending in spring 2016, and then returned to barrel for a further eight months, for a total of 24 months of barrel ageing. It’s about sheer elegance on the nose, a sum of its parts, showing blackberries, cherries, black licorice, graphite, cassis and toasted oak spice and vanilla. It shows its teeth on the palate with a firm foundation of ripe tannins and generous fruit, spice, campfire smoke and earth. It is but a baby at this point and needs time to all calm down to fully appreciate the beauty. Wait for it, it is the new flagship wine, after all.Voir la revue de presse détaillée

Beppi Crosariol, Septembre 2017
Tinhorn's new flagship wine is a blend of 53-per-cent cabernet sauvignon with support from merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and a splash of petit verdot – a Bordeaux-style red blend, in other words. There's spicy tang here from 24 months in French and Hungarian oak barrels, to be sure, which serves as a lively counterpoint to the seductive dark-berry fruit. It's very dry in the end, with fine-grained, dusty tannins that should help the wine evolve well for years in the cellar.Voir la revue de presse détaillée
