“Intense aromas of ripe herbs, plums, green coffee beans, and hazelnuts. Turns to crushed berries and orange peel. Full-bodied with superb concentration and fine, velvety tannins that run the length of the wine. It's big but agile and gorgeous. Merlot. What a wine! Best after 2030.” - James Suckling

“Tasted from barrel, the 2020 Masseto is incredibly expressive out of the gate, with a sweet perfume of candied plum, boysenberry, crushed flowers, mocha, sweet earth, and fresh sage. The palate is full-bodied and decadent, with a velvety texture and notes of black plum, fresh leather, and scorched mineral earth. It delivers great finesse and polish that features opulence without having weight. I look forward to tasting this next year from bottle.” - Jeb Dunnuck

“Tasted from barrel, the 2020 Masseto is beautifully full and generous with concentrated black fruit, rich texture and soft tannins. There are distant hints of pencil shaving and crushed peppercorn that come from the very small (from 6% to 7%) part of Cabernet Franc that is blended into this Merlot from blue clay soils. We will also see a small part of Cabernet Franc in the 2021 vintage. The oak management is superb. Masseto finishes in medium-toast oak from various coopers, mostly Taransaud (T5) and Seguin-Moreau (Icône) with a tiny percentage of Nadalié. The 2020 promises an exuberant and immediate approach next to the very precise, focused and long-term 2019. It also has that 360-degree abundance that we saw in the unforgettable 2015 vintage.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
