Vintage 2008 - 65 #cabernetsauvignon 25 #merlot 10 #cabernetfranc Too young now, classic with giga power, ultimate harmony in smell, a broad range of red fruit. Real treat! #bolgheri

Night cap for a nice Sunday! Beauty of the Coravin.

57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot.

This puppy has held on quite well! Incredibly vibrant and barely developed.

👃Dark chocolate, espresso bean, decay/compost, green peppercorn, smoked nutmeg, grilled meat

👅creme de casis, luxardo cherry, clove, chocolate truffle, sandlewood, green bell pepper, herbes de Provence - firm tannin structure well integrated, medium plus acidity, and an everlasting grip of a finish.

Showing some great things right now! If you have some, keep holding on (just open one for good measure) and get more if possible.

Intense full bodied wine. Should have been opened 1 hr prior to service. Menthol and spice came thru on the very last pour..

A lovely nose, rich, opulent with notes of sweet black fruits. The palate is full, fleshy with sweet tannins. From mid-palate onwards alcohol levels (15.5% Vol.) take over. Disappointing considering a promising start.
