...an integrated and seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot...The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas this year with beautiful notes of dark fruit, tobacco and spice. Those perfumes are just gorgeous. The mouthfeel is similarly intense with tannins that are still young, but are already silky and linear in nature. This vintage promises a long aging future. eRobertParker.com

Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 2013: from Jay. Initial thoughts/impressions from a brief tasting conducted this afternoon. Deep ruby colour. Dark fruits, cedar tobacco box wrapper and brown spice dominate a delightful nose with a hint of torrefaction. The wine has a subtle attack across the palate but then builds across the mid palate. This is not the dense and intense super Tuscan style we have often seen over the last 20 odd years but a more nuanced wine with tannins which, at this stage, are far greater along in their path to integration. There is certainly a feeling of balance here. 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot. 94/100. Drink 2020 to 2040.

dark fruit (cherries, plum) and oaked spice, already showing excellent balance in this young, but spectacular bordeaux-style super tuscan.
