Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012

(blended with 4% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot):  Classic cabernet aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals and violet.  Supple and sweet, with moderate nuance but good balance to the cassis and mint flavors.  Finishes with dusty tannins and good length.  Nicely done for the price--and there are 80,000 cases of this juice!

Cabernet Sauvignon

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...
