Château Kirwan is a wine that is produced from the best parcels of the vineyard that have mainly gravel soils, but some are also clay. The fruit is picked and sorted twice by hand, then vinified in separate batches corresponding to individual vineyard parcels. Half the oak barrels used to age the wine for eighteen months are renewed every year.

Barrel Sample. The wine's richness is concentrated, offering black plum flavors and dense tannins all bound together in a ripe wine. Acidity shoots through the bold black fruits, giving the wine intensity and certainly a great future.

This drapes wonderfully, with its range of warmed cassis, plum reduction and blackberry preserve flavors displaying a cashmere feel while warmed anise, alder, juniper and bay details peek in throughout. Rich yet defined finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2036. 7,500 cases made.

The 2018 Kirwan feels as if it has closed down in the midst of its barrel maturation. Tightly wound blackberry and wild strawberry scents and a splash of iodine blossom with aeration, but the aromas remain on a tight leash. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that lend a velvety-smooth texture. This is very seductive, although I am seeking more depth on the finish. If that does transpire, then this Kirwan will deserve a score at the top of my band.
