Had this a year ago & set down another bottle. A special wine not produced every vintage, BDX presents a different expression of Oakville in a Bordeaux blend of Cab Sauv and small bit of Cab Franc. The wine sat on French oak (32% new) for 29 months. Aromas of rich ripe berry fruit, sweet oak spice & cedar notes. On the palate blackberry & sweet cherry flavor with cacao & cedar spice, great balance & structure. Soft tannins, balanced acidity on a lingering finish ending with a slight earthy character. Nice!

Oakville Cab has an alluring dark purple, almost inky color with loads of blue and black fruit aromas. The wine is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot & 2% Malbec and aged in French oak (72% new) for almost 2 years. The taste reveals powerful complex flavors, blackberry and sweet plums with sweet spice, oak and earthy notes. Well balanced with good acidity and big developed tannins. Full-bodied finishes smooth ending with cacao and wood spice. Delightful!

I was excited for this rm, but didn’t love it as much as the Pinot private selection. It’s heavy

A very appealing selection, especially to sip on while putting up Christmas decorations 🎄 Cinnamon-dusted dark cherries, menthol, vanilla, cocoa, wet leather, and musty cardboard (which will dissipate as it opens up). Delicious wine.

Nice. Simple. Cassis, oak, needs a bit more acidity.

첫만남.
특유의 오크향~ 부드러운 목넘김~ 가려진 알콜~ 깔끔한 피니쉬~ 사박자 밸런스 좋은! 가격대비 굿! 와인!
근데.. 내가 좋아하는 캐릭터가 없다!!
나에겐, structure & finish 가 부족해..
미안합니다. 처음인데...
