Greg Ballington

@Delectable Wine this is the 2015 Groot Constantia Cape Winemakers Guild Gouverneurs Auction Reserve.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Twenty-first wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and the tenth red wine. This is made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot by Boela Gerber from Constantia. Aged for a total of 18 months in 85% new French oak prior to blending and bottling. Only 100 cases produced with 40 being auctioned in 2018.

September 28, 2018
Deep garnet red. Quite chalky on the nose with a lot of greenery and a touch of dark berries. Solid acidity with medium tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. A bit of dried fruit on the palate with some gravel and bell peppers. Medium to medium plus finish. Needs time to beef up and develop. Drink from 2020 till 2028.

$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R4,560.00 ($53.64 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R7,200.00 ($84.69 a bottle) and lowest bid was R4,000.00 ($47.05 a bottle).

Garagiste Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Nice berry explosions in my mouth... lots of tobacco, allspice, a bit of firewood on the nose. It’s tannins are super prominent and I think this will drink better in a few years. Glad I used to coravin to sneak a taste! #nakedwines #chillfriday #bordeauxblend #youngwine #redwine #fridaywine @nakedwines @jonathanmalthus — 2 years ago

I am enjoying it and yet its a little too warm and slightly too chewy and sweet. Smooth and easy, perhaps too easy. #napa #bordeauxblend — a year ago

Château Roquefort

Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Pleasing #bordeauxblend drank at a Paris café. Rich fruit up front with a dark berry nose which matches the initial palate impression with some structure from tannins and moderate acidity. Interesting savory depth with earthiness trailing off with a touch longer finish. Very approachable wine. Great value at €20 asked for the bottle on a restaurant menu. — 2 years ago

Château Faugères

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Roasted fruits, cocoa, maduro wrapper leaf, spice box. Loads of cool vintage character; a real old school Bordeaux. Plush, polished, really fine. #stemilion #bordeauxblend #rightbank — 2 years ago

Seraselva Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot. Plums, dust, spice box. Fine grained tannins, minimal oak, excellent acidity. Definitely Tuscan. Not greasy, oaky and facile like a lot of $50 retail Cali wines of this type. Top value! #poggioalsole #tuscany #bordeauxblend — a year ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Orma Bolgheri IGT SuperTuscan Blend 2007

2007 Orma Toscana from Tenuta Sette Ponti. Bordeaux blend from Tuscany. 40% Cab Franc 20% Cab Sauv 40% Merlot. The wine spent 12 months in French bariques and another 12 in the bottle. Dark berries, spice, with hints of Licorice and chocolate. Well integrated tannins and a nice full finish. Should drink well for another 4-5 years. #tuscanwine #italianredwine #supertuscan #maremma #orma #tenutasetteponti #bordeauxblend #2007tuscanvintage #goodredwine #nobleestates — 2 years ago

Aromas of cherry pie, stewed tomato and dried herbs. Super silky, medium body and medium acidity. Quite lovely. #justin #isosceles #bordeauxblend — 2 years ago
