Sassacaia

Marchesi Antinori

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2013

Possibly one of the finest wines I've tasted. Bold statement but this crushed a Sassacaia I had a week ago. Decanted about an hour and got mouthfuls of red berry, vanilla, leather, and silk. In 5 years...wow! — 4 years ago

Quilceda Creek

Washington Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Restrained nose of Plum and Prune. Also notes of wet hot bitumen road. Latent brooding power. Experts say drinking window to 2015 but will go on well beyond that IMO. Amazing fruit strength for a cool climate area like Washington State. Full bodied with decadently rich flavours. One of the best new world Cabernets I have had. Up there with Woodlands Moss Wood Dominus Sassacaia amongst others having not tried many of the Californian Cult classics. A birthday treat. — 5 years ago

Not that Sassacaia is new world. More Cab based with Barriques in an old world country.
