This afternoon a good friend and I shared the 2011 Domaine Berrien Cellars Crown of Cab. The wine is a blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. Your classic Bordeaux blend and again from my favorite winery in Southwest Michigan.

On the nose you will find black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, licorice, herbs, spice and a nice earth component.

The palate brings forth the dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, green bell pepper, menthol, black licorice, spice, an herbal note and a nice earthy loam.

The wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy tannins that leads to a long clean dark fruit finish. What a pleasant and surprising experience we enjoyed this afternoon. I loved how this wine has developed over time and given another 5 to 10 years it will continue to gracefully age. This is Domaine Barrien's flagship wine and for the price you can't beat it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

2011 Domaine Berrien Cellars 'Crown of Cab' Bordeaux Style Blend, Lake Michigan Shore. Blend of all 5 major Bordeaux red grapes with notes of black cherry and cassis intertwined with mocha dust, espresso bean and vanilla spice. Soft and plush. #wine #sommelier
