Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Beautiful tertiary notes, mushrooms, forest floor, leather, cease box, tabacco leaves with restrained red fruits. The tannin is slightly bitter but very firm and dusty. A bit hallow on the mid palate but solid one. — 7 days ago

Body Medium and palate very balanced between acid and fruit. Long finish. 8.9. '10 had great structure and texture that's mouth puckering. Will age well. 9.0.

Château La Croix Margautot

Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Mm. Small dark fruit with a bit of bitterness and a little spice. Some pleasant oaky vanilla at the back that creeps forward as it opens. But the crucial question: how does it work with a bone-in ribeye?

Rather nicely. Incidentally, am I the only one who thinks "bone-in ribeye" should be considered a redundant phrase? All ribeyes should be bone-in.

Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

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. — 19 days ago
