Blankiet Estate Prince of Hearts Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

$74.99

The much anticipated release of Blankiet Estate Prince of Hearts is here, and oh boy was it worth the wait. This wine is stunningly fine and elegant. Incredibly prefumed with red fruit, violet, cedar box and spices. Limited. Antonio Galloni:  "Blankiet's Prince of Hearts Paradise Hills Vineyard is absolutely impeccable. Bright, floral and juicy, the 2011 impresses for its sense of proportion and harmony. Sweet spices, rose petals and raspberries flow through to the finish. The 2011 isn't a huge wine, but it is without question one of the most delicious, pleasurable reds of the year, especially within its price range. The 2011 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and drops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot."

Quite good for 2011. Decanted 5 hrs and checked along the way. Really mellowed out and improved over that time. Very nice QPR

I know that PofH seems to be a darling with wine critics and has the reputation of a great 2nd label/QPR from Napa at around $70. I may be swimming against the stream here but having recently opened 2009/10/11/12 I must admit to being a tiny bit underwhelmed. I even have difficulties recognizing varietal characters aligned with Napa. Perhaps I shall just pop them on the earlier side...??

;-) (Please keep trash-talking the 2011-vintage from Napa and I'll cross my fingers that I win the Lotto so I can stock up). GREAT wine!

Great producer but the wine is underwhelming. Could be the 2011 vintage

Ready to drink. Not complex. Doesn't need air. Good, but not like some of the older vintages, not surprisingly.
