Arcanum "Valadorna" is made by the legendary Pierre Seillan, famed winemaker of Vérité winery in Sonoma. Like his 100-point powerhouse wines from California, the Lassegue wines are anything but shy. The 2018 is packed with rich dark fruit, chocolate and this wild earthiness we always find in Pierre's wines. Valadorna is Merlot dominant, deep dark and smooth, and incredibly complex.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 points
The Valadorna (65% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is a dark and thickly endowed red wine that boasts a rich and lasting grip on the palate. The bouquet offers depth and complexity with dark fruit, leather, cured tobacco and spice. There are also softer notes of chocolate and ground espresso beans. The wine's seamless integration of flavors leads to increased momentum and intensity as the wine continues to open in the glass. 

Wine Spectator - 93 points
This rich, powerful red, packed with blackberry and blueberry fruit, is beginning to mellow, offering a woodsy panoply of mushroom, humus and autumn leaves in the background. There are still some tannins to resolve. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2032.

James Suckling - 92 points
Big and rich wine with lots of fruit and tannins. Plenty of wood, too. Full body. Needs two or three years to soften. Try after 2021.
