Brecon’s 2014 Petit Verdot (Templeton Gap) scored 90 points in the November issue of Wine Enthusiast. “In Blackberry and black cassis meet with deep lilacs on the rich but somewhat single-toned nose of this bottling. The palate is bursting with fresh blackberrry juice, leveled by touches of cedar and pipe tobacco.”

If you're a fan of Brecon Estate's Cab Franc, you'll love the Varietal Focus section in the September issue of Wine Business Monthly. Damian even gives away some of his tips on how he tames this "randy" varietal into an award winner.
Jeb Dunnuck stuck his most discerning nose into some of Brecon’s current and upcoming offerings during bottling season. This is of course the absolutely trickiest time to taste wines, so we are especially thrilled to receive these scores in last month’s issue of The Wine Advocate!

Brecon is continuing its gold medal run! Check out these reviews in the September issue of Wine Enthusiast:
2014 Mourvedre, 93 points - Extremely fresh and fragrant aromas of black plums, baked alpine strawberries, vanilla and Mission figs prove rich and inviting on the nose. The ripe fruit flavors show on the palate as does an abundance of purple flowers, baked gingerbread and exotic brown spice, making for a tasty pour.
2014 Syrah, 93 points - Done in the rich Paso style, this bottling shows fresh blackberry jam, crushed thyme, rosemary and vanilla on the seductive nose. The lavish palate offers espresso syrup, caramel and dense vanilla-laced blueberry. It's a great bottling for those who love a rich and decadent style.
