The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from the glass with mocha, tobacco, grilled herbs, smoke, licorice, incense and orang peel. An exotic, layered wine, the 2011 impresses for its length and pure persistence. The style is that of a cold year, which means the tannins are a bit firm and in need of further bottle age. This is a beautiful wine for the year, but also in its own right. Readers need to give the 2011 at least another year or two in bottle. The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.
The Bordeaux varietals include a 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes primarily from estate vineyards. There are generally 15,000 to 30,000 cases produced depending on the vintage, and the tiny 2011 crop produced 15,000 cases whereas the large, ripe 2012 crop resulted in nearly 30,000. The 2011 is an attractive, well-made effort for the vintage displaying notions of roasted herbs, red and black currants, loamy soil and plenty of fruit in a medium-bodied, sensual, silky style. Drink it over the next decade.
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, woodsmoke and mocha, plus hints of adhesive tape and weedy herbs. Offers decent intensity and depth but only moderate ripeness to the flavors of dark chocolate and peppery herbs. Finishes with a light dusting of slightly dry-edged tannins.
Well-proportioned even as the tannins gain the upper hand on the finish, with herb, dill and dried berry notes at the core, ending simple. Drink now through 2020. (Web Only - 2014)
