Sipping Fine Wine

Angelo Gaja’s venture - Ca'Marcanda. Blend of 60% Cab Franc, 30% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, barrel aged for 12 mos. A big, very rich Gaja style wine. Deep red with dark berry fruits and earthy leathery spice notes. On the palate blackberry and black cherry flavors, smooth with integrated spice, mint and tobacco, screaming acidity. Fine tannins, great balance, long, drinks well ending with mineral spice character. Very nice.

A wonderful wine, youthful but already showing plenty of complexity with an intense fruit profile that is carrying the oak, and the tertiary characters. good intensity on the palate, with a long developing finish, give it some rest for a better harmony and integration on the palate.

After two hours in the decanter really started to open up. Dense, smooth, lots of cab franc graphite. Some dark fruit and violets on the nose.
