About the Wine
Tasting Notes: Dark, brooding mountain cabernet laced with chocolate, caramel and savory spices. Fruit flavors of blackberry, black currant and cassis dominate the aromas with a hint of minerality to add intrigue. Big, full-bodied entry with loads of chewy tannins and a re-statement of the black fruit, chocolate, licorice and stoney minerality on the palate. Excellent weight on the mid-palate, and though the tannins are compact and youthful, the finish remains elegant and persistent. Drink 2010 to 2020 or decant 2-3 hours before service.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 93%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Petit Verdot 2%
Check this out if you enjoyed the classic vintages of Gruaud-Larose: This is funky and complex, with the same kind of fat that St-Julien would boast. ~94 W&S
Rich and vibrant in acids and tannins, this Cabernet feels like it was obviously grown in a good place. It flatters the palate with blackberry and black cherry flavors, with a currant ripeness accentuated by 80% new French oak. ~92WE
