Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

Le Dix de Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Solid Bordeaux style with the addition of plenty of Chilean sun, you can’t go wrong. Flavours are more Christmas spice than I would have expected with a rich dry fruit finish. Not in the Alma viva leagues but a good drop. In fairness I started this too cold after a spell in the fridge but it really started to evolve as it warmed up and also on the second day. If there was a 9.05 score option that would be right. — 12 days ago

Carmen

Frida Kahlo Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Color of saturated ruby with a mix of purple shades. Nose of vanilla, dried strawberries, hickory, dark ripe fruits in general, and a bit oak. Nose is round and refined. Taste of smoke acidity, ripe dark skin grape, cherry tobacco, mineral, sweetness from fruits and vanilla, a bit minty and zesty. Quite chewy and mouthful, very Syrah like. Aftertaste is medium long with sweet and zest note and backbone of tannins. I think she is pretty decent. — 22 days ago

Echeverria

Limited Edition Central Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Very smooth. Long finish, yet tannins don’t seem to stick to your tongue. Rich flavor bit doesn’t overpower seafood. Excellent flavor for price point — 5 days ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Good Paso cab example - lighter body and more restrained fruit compared to my usual Oakville suspects, but a nice ref enjoyed with some steak looking at the mountains. — 5 months ago

@Shay A grew up doing Breck every season and still my favorite area! I did Teton Village a few weeks ago for the first time and enjoyed it, too!

9.1

Shimmering magenta. Spice-tinged blackcurrant and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied lavender and cured tobacco. Offers sappy dark berry, bitter cherry, mocha and cracked pepper flavors that gain weight and turn sweeter with air. The long, penetrating finish features harmonious tannins and lingering spice and floral qualities. (raised in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak, 35% of it new) (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

Brilliant violet. Pungent, mineral-accented cassis, cherry preserve, floral and pipe tobacco scents pick up a sexy vanilla quality as the wine opens up. Shows impressive depth as well as energy on the palate, offering sweet dark berry, cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors that become spicier on the back half. Finishes with excellent clarity and solid dark-fruit thrust, displaying harmonious tannins and lingering floral, vanilla and chewing tobacco notes. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, half of them new. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)
