The 2017 The Lovers checks in as a normal blend of close to 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Syrah and offers lots of darker currant and smoked blackberry fruits as well as ample licorice, graphite, and gravelly minerality. It's a good counterpoint to the more ethereal Camaspelo and shows a more masculine, concentrated style that's going to reward bottle age. Do your best to hide bottles for 3-5 years and it will shine for 15-20 years or more.

Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 87% of this wine, with the rest Syrah. Aromas of stone, tobacco, peat, herb, plum and cherry lead to a somewhat lighter styled but almost creamy-feeling palate, full of mouthwatering cherry, plum, earth and savory flavors.
