Simply Amazing
06/01/2014

Not sure if it is just the year but what a year. The is wine is amazing. The taste is exceptional, smooth and delightful. This wine makes a simple dinner amazing. The energy of the wine is comfortable leaving the body and mind feeling very zen and relaxed. I am so glad I purchased this bottle and year. I do not consider myself a specialist in wine. I do know what taste good to me and how it makes me feel after. This feeling is shared among my family.

Easy 5 stars here. Opened one last night, and did not decant. Initially a little stiff, and you could taste all 14.9% of the alcohol level, but then it opened after some glass swirling...one of the most balanced wines I've ever tasted...a little fruit on the attack, but nothing overwhelming. The wife was picking up all manners of fruit, including apple (she's great at this). I was way more impressed with the restrained and delicious mid palate feel here. That's when the wine gets you...a little hint of vanilla and toasted oak, with some good French-style minerality. Finish was perfect. This drank like a $200 bottle+...so for under $30/bottle, this easily gets 5-stars. Wish I would have bought more. Wow. Rob Van Bergen

Decanted for an hour and it was fabulous. Not quite as oaky the second day, but well with the price. Would definitely buy again!

Varietal Image
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...
