Haut-Medoc 2010

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous one from France.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Gorgeous nose of blackberries, black plums, black cherries, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, black pepper, dark coffee, light alcohol, pencil lead, river rocks, light vegetables and leather.

Full bodied, soft and elegant, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vegetables, vanilla, pencil lead, earth, chocolates, dark coffee, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and spices.

This 9 year old Cabernet based Bordeaux is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This is from a great vintage, and it is showing. Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up. Tannins come in after 30 minutes of airtime.

Still has a lot in it, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.

Thank you Steve and Alex for sharing this beauty with me.

Delicious and yummy.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, but it is great to drink all by itself too.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$40.

Stellenbosch Syrah 2014

The nose reveals, jammy red fruits; blackberries, black raspberries, touch of black plum, blue & purple fruits and baked strawberries. Dark, rich, dark soils, crushed dry rocks, vanilla, black licorice, dark berry cola, touch of band aid, dark spice with, bright, fresh, red, dark and purple flowers.

The body restrained for Syrah. The tannins are fine, firm, weighty and sticky. Jammy red fruits; blackberries, black raspberries, touch of black plum, blue & purple fruits and baked strawberries. Dark, rich, dark soils, crushed dry rocks, vanilla, black licorice, dark berry cola, touch of band aid, dark spice with, bright, fresh, red, dark and purple flowers. The acidity is good. The finish will take some time to flush out and wine to better ingrate.

Photos of; Keermont property as viewed from the top of their hillside vineyards, cellar concrete & stainless steel tanks and one of the many snakes that live on the property. This one passed by while Alex was showing us his vineyard. And, yes, his venom is toxic and could end your life if not treated straight away.

Fausto Verve Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Dark inky in color with a short, dirty brick rim.

Strong nose of black currants, cooked plums, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, pencil lead, cola, peppercorn, leather, bone fire smoke, dark chocolates and sweet candy.

Full bodied and soft with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, graphite, peppercorn, leather, vegetables, tobacco and espresso.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tart raspberries.

This is a very nice Brazilian Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Feels like an old world wine.

This 8 year old has a nice mouthfeel, but not fully balanced. The mid palate is very tasty, until the ending, which is a bit too tart for my taste. I actually liked the nose better than the palate.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and remove the barnyard notes.

Paired very nicely with food.

Thank you Alex for sharing.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tannant. Aged in Oak barrels. A small production of only 4250 bottles. This blend was only produced in this 2011 vintage.
