92(+?)? Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(15.6% alcohol; blended with 8% cabernet franc, 3% merlot, 2% malbec and 1% petit verdot):  Full ruby-red.  Pungent mineral lift to the aromas of cassis and cola.  The supplest and sweetest of this trio of 2008s today but the least complex, with a slightly grapey mountain intensity to its cassis, dark chocolate and licorice flavors.  Plenty ripe, but the tannins here are less refined than those in Morlet's cabernets from Oakville.  This cooler site enjoys long hang time, notes Morlet.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
