Christian Moueix Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

$169

Fabulous subtle aromas of black currants, violets and lilacs with a hot stone undertone. Full-bodied and dense, it shows such wonderful energy and synergy that delivers a firm yet gentle tannin backbone and complex mouthfeel that seduces you. Evolves wonderfully. Second wine from this new estate, which is owned by Christian Moueix of Dominus and Bordeaux... James Suckling

Second Vintage for this. It was a bit perplexing as the gorgeous fruit of 2013 was blocked off by a stop sign of green. I was shocked really. It does blow off after time, thankfully. Definitely not a wine to drink anytime soon.

Earthy and very little tannins. Still could age 2-3 more years but it’s extremely good. Great on the nose (lots of cedar). At first it’s a bit fruity but the finish is deep and really good. You’ll need a big steak with this one.

Interesting. Not a bad thing. Decanted for 2 hours, the nose is pure cedar box it is crazy. The oak is a little strong but it's young and not fruit forward, made in a more Bordeaux style. Tobacco , earth, cedar. Everyone likes it but needs time.
