Future Crossings 2021 Earns 91
Additionally, Thibido’s Future Crossings 2021, an estate-grown Syrah Grenache co-ferment, earned a commendable 91 points from Dunnuck. The review reads, “Smoked blackberries, leather, pepper, and bouquet garni notes define the 2021 Future Crossings, a medium to full-bodied, ripe, nicely balanced, high-quality Syrah from Paso Robles. It brings lots of ripeness but has a balanced, satisfying, nicely drinkable style with plenty to love.”
Carnala 2021 Scores 90
One standout from Thibido’s collection is the Carnala 2021, a meticulously crafted Carignan-based blend. This new label is a showcase of our estate vineyard where fruit is organically farmed by co-owner, Josh Beckett himself. Dunnuck awarded Carnala an impressive 90 points, categorizing it as “outstanding.” In his review, Dunnuck notes, “Ripe black cherries, blackberries, peppery herbs, leather, and underbrush notes all emerge from the 2021 Carnala, a medium to full-bodied blend based on 83% Carignan, 10% Syrah, and 7% Mourvèdre. It has good purity, ripe tannins, and nicely integrated acidity, all making for a terrific example of Carignan that readers will love. Drink bottles over the coming 5 – 7 years.”
These ratings underscore our commitment to producing exceptional wines from dirt to bottle. As wine lovers seek out the greatest vintages, Dunnuck offers praise for Thibido wines as well as an additional opinion for consumers to consider as they seek out their favorite bottles.
