It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one from France. Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim. Strong nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, coffee, eucalyptus, black pepper, dark chocolates, wet leaves, earth and leather. Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, dark chocolates, bitter herbs, vegetables, wet leaves and peppercorn. Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries. This young Bordeaux is already drinking very nicely. Needs at least five years to come to its own, and will be better in the next 20 years. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Robert Parker 90 points. This is the second wine from this second growth winery, and from a great vintage. Very tasty, yet not fully balanced. Needs 3 hours to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. 13.5% alcohol by volume. 92 points. $65.

Too young to drink. I’m giving this one a high mark on potential. Lovely wine!!
