This is a generous, opulent wine with ripe blackberry and hints of spice notes sustained by rich tannins. Juicy and packed with tannins, this will be ready to drink young, but will also age over many years.

96-98 points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (Apr 2018)

The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion, blended of 56% Merlot, 39.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4.4% Cabernet Franc, is very deep garnet-purple in color and scented of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with suggestions of cigar box, bay leaves, Indian spices and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied with very firm, grainy tannins and a racy backbone supporting the taut, muscular fruit, it has bags of mineral and earthy suggestions layering the very long finish.

95-97 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # 236 - Apr 2018)

This is a very tight and focused young La Mission with a pretty center palate of dark fruit and flavors of oyster shell and hints of fresh tobacco. Serious and precise on the finish. 56% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 4% cabernet franc.
