Slightly corked, but showed everything I had hoped, and then some. Can't believe I got this for $45.

I am pleasantly surprised with the wine I have opened tonight, the 2014 Chateau Kirwan. The wine is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.

The aromas are plentiful and made me want to get into the joy of letting its complexity roll over my palate. We have blackberry, black cherry, black currant, blueberry, mint, mocha, vanilla and lilac. So enjoyable it excites the senses.

Upon first sip its complexity continues the flavor train waking up every inch of my palate. There is blackberry, black cherry, blueberry, black currant, cassis, black pepper, green bell pepper, iodine, mint, herbal notes, clove, violets and gravel.

The wine is medium to + body with medium + acidity and medium + tannins with a fine sandpaper feel that leads to a finish that is long and leaving me wanting more.

Chateau Kirwan has over achieved and has brought me to a real happy and comfortable place. The QPR on this is of the charts. For the price that you can get this for it is right in line with the higher end wines I have had. I hope you have a continued enjoyable weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

First wine in flight three for the Bordeaux Master's Class at Heart's Delight with all wines from Margaux.

Medium to deep ruby red. Layered nose with an attack of blackberries and cinnamon. Followed by an undertone of red cherries. Heavy tannins (7/10) with a touch gritty in texture, almost like a soft sandpaper. Quite a bit of a acidity but still balanced with notes of yeast, sweet spices, cinnamon, vanilla, and dark black fruits. Dry medium plus to full body with a long finish. Drink till 2037+. (91+)

This is a steal: a good value Bordeaux at a price that won’t break my bank account

A young 3rd growth that is just starting to develop. After 2 hours of decant, the nose blossomed into really nice mix of black and blue cherries, cassis, violet, raspberry, olive, and herbs, with slight hint of leather and and crushed rocks. The entry was soft and elegant, with juicy acidity. Firm but fine grained tannins.
2014 Bordeaux is a great bargains compared to 15 and 16.
