"What a pleasure it is to taste the 2012 Old Master, Lee Hudson’s Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend. Dark, intense and muscular, the 2012 boasts serious depth and fabulous overall balance. The flavors are brooding and inward, yet there is so much going on in the glass. Black cherry jam, spices, grilled herbs and leather open up over time, but it is the wine’s pure personality that really shines. What a gorgeous wine this is." Antonio Galloni. 93+ points
