Masterclass in San Francisco with Saskia De Rothschild, Chairwoman DBR Lafite. Chateau L’ Evangile is another property owned by the Rothschild Family.

The nose reveals; dark, deep currants. Ruby, ripe, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, blueberries, baked strawberries and black raspberries. Dark chocolate, cinnamon, caramel, clove, touch of nutmeg, dark rich soils, steeped black tea, some black licorice, tree sap, eucalyptus notes, leather, soft tobacco, saddle/wood with ruby, fresh and withering dark, red flowers with soft violets.

The body is full. The mouthfeel gorgeous. The tannins firm, powdery, tarry & sticky. currants. Ruby, ripe, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, blueberries, baked strawberries and black raspberries. Dark chocolate, cinnamon, caramel, clove, touch of nutmeg, dark rich soils, steeped black tea, some black licorice, tree sap, eucalyptus notes, leather, soft tobacco, saddle/wood with ruby, fresh and withering dark, red flowers with soft violets. The structure, tension, length and balance are beginning to find its groove. The acidity is nice round and beautiful. The long finish is, sexy on the palate, ruby gorgeous, well balanced, polish and beautiful. It lingers nicely for minutes.

All wines arrived weeks ago directly from the Chateau.

Photos of; the Crown Room on the 23rd floor of the Fairmont where the Masterclass was held, tasting set up, our double decanters and pourers and another view of the city of San Francisco.

Tasting group 2/7/16. Blind. Capsicum, hard, black plum. Capsicum in the flavors, odd tartness. Guessed right bank.
