It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Very pretty color of ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Nice nose with unique aluminum notes.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with red and black fruits, earth, herbs, oak, chocolates, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend from Bolgheri in Tuscany. Elegant and fruity with nice complexity.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Easy drinking and needs time to open up properly.

Already tasty and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

Elegant and robust. Spicy and fruit forward.

Feels like an old world Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of new world.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, and 6 months in large Austrian barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$30.

Enjoying this easy going Super Tuscan with my favorite pasta in the world: 'Penne alla Bettola' - perhaps the worlds best vodka sauce.

2010 Castello di Bolgheri Varvara Super Tuscan. Blend of CS, PV, Syrah and Merlot. An elegant sip with black cherry, currant, cedar spice, dried tobacco and leather. Lively and soft with a fleshy finish. Better than many Napa big boys and less than half the price. Roughly $30 retail. #wine #tuscany #bolgheri #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #cabernet

50% Cab, 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 10% PEtite Verdot
Deep ruby, clear, clean aromas of baking spice from new oak, plum, black cherry, leather, violet. Juicy but not over the top - well balanced with fine tannins. Straightforward and luscious
This is lovely - medium tannin, coffee, hints of baking spice, great length, a more-ish wine

Аромат ягодный, полный, с небольшой добавкой пряностей. Строгий, сдержанный, симпатичный. Во вкусе немного больше дуба, пряно, чуть шоколадно. 15.5/20 (86/100)
