Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 99 | Boich’s 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Perennius is the best blend winemaker Jeff Ames could assemble, from the best barrels in the cellar. It really shows how blending and selection can shape a wine, as while it shares the dark fruit shown by the single-vineyard bottlings, it takes the mocha, cassis, plum and black cherry notes and raises the bar even higher, adding impressive length and freshness. Full-bodied, lush, fruit-driven, rich, and enormously complex, this is really terrific stuff and nearly worthy of a perfect score.
International Wine Report, 99 | The 2018 ‘Perennius‘ Cabernet Sauvignon is drop dead gorgeous. This seductive wine begins with incredibly perfumed aromas of ripe blackberries, blueberries and dark currents, which are accented by nuances of cigar box, sweet spices, violets, loam and hints of fresh sage nuances which all burst from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and remarkably concentrated, with impressive depth. There is a wonderful display of balance as the deep, intense fruit character is underlined by lovely acidity, which adds a gorgeous sense of freshness. This goes on to impress with its outstanding structure and beautifully polished frame that persists through the long multi-dimensional finish. The 2018 Perennius is simply amazing and nothing short of utterly delicious at this early stage, however it also has the stuff to cruise in the cellar for decades.
