Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2003

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide red/brick rim.

Pretty nose of currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, herbs, light vegetables, pencil lead, light vinaigrette, olives, peppercorn, leather, tobacco leaf, earth and dark coffee.

Full bodied and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cooked black plums, ripen cherries, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, earth, light vanilla and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Tuscany. Smooth with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This 19 year old is Interesting and tasty. Not from the best vintage, but still very yummy, and at its peak right now.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime.

Thank you Judy for sharing this with me.

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Robust berry blend with soft finish and beautifully fragrant. 2013 opens up nicely, but would be curious if it tastes even better with more age. — 15 days ago

Big Friesian cow night and this was pretty good…not convinced it’s worth it compared to the classic roc de cambes that came next, but still well appreciated xxx — 19 days ago

Nice wine. Lots of acid, some salinity, medium to full bodied but not overbearing. Nothing overly amazing but a solid value. — 24 days ago
