Sweet butterscotch notes with decent tannin — 5 months ago
One of our favorites, from Alex at Cache Cache! 7/7/17 — 3 years ago
Pretty impressive for a third wine, "Pauillac" is a relatively new wine for Bordeaux from Chateau Latour. From what I read 1990 may have been the first vintage.
I was not surprised of its character based on being a 2009, but based off of the 2006 and 2008 of this same wine I had low expectations. I have tasted this twice in the past and it was pretty good, but young and tight. This is young and while well structured, it's open for business and plenty enjoyable. The nose is really fragrant and persistent, within 2 feet of the glass you can smell it's charms. Red currants, black cherry, cassis, some violets floral essence that peaks as pure Cabernet. Secondary notes of toast and coffee act like a shadow to the fruit. Texturally this is great, density of flavor without weight, with firm and dusty tannin. A long finish on the palate adds good acidity and some minerality.
Will this get better? If you like your wines with some youthful exuberance this is right where you want it. But if you want to see it mature this should easily go another 10-12.
This then likely makes 2010 worth a look too.
Which brings us to price and value. It can be an odd wine for the normal price as it's not usually a good value, mostly because you can get first wines from other classified Chateau for the same or in some cases materially less.
I got this for a decent price at a big retailer sale event. Would I pay 90 as its priced now? No, absolutely not but I would take it for $60 or better.
But again we are talking cache and Latour, to me the greatest of the 1st Growth Bordeaux wines. — 4 years ago
Very sweet, fruity, good! Had with the Young family at The Cache. — 2 years ago
The Jauma lineup is a rainbow spectrum of bright colored, hazy, unfiltered wines with creative labels, beer cap tops (even for still wines) and lots of internet cache’. The Shiraz based Disco Special is my favorite of the group and comes in a recycled 750ml beer bottle. It is the least juicy of the bunch and has a layered bouquet of beautiful sour red berries with high acid tones, minerals, and green herbs. Lots of zippy acidity is delivered via flavors of sour cherries and lingonberry. The texture is supple and soft and rounds out the acid. It’s true to the Natural Wine profile, where I tread with caution. But it is delicate, balanced, and free of excessive funk, juice, and crunch. — 2 years ago
