Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2021

It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Nice nose of black currants, black plums, cooked cherries, spices, oak, licorice, vanilla, tobacco, milk chocolates and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, spices, vanilla, licorice, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn and light cola.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Merlot based blend from Bolgheri in Tuscany. Feels like a red Bordeaux, with a Napa twist. Interesting stuff.

Elegant and robust. Rich and fruit forward. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and entertaining.

This 3 year old is still young, but already delicious. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime.

A good quality wine that drinks wonderfully by itself. Will also pair nicely with a BBQ Meats.

A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$120.

Volpolo Bolgheri Red Blend 2022

Sitting for lunch in the heart of the city of Bolgheri, at a great restaurant, I had to try something I never had before. This entry level Bordeaux blend was a nice surprise.

Purple in color with a purplish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing blueberries, plums, black currants, cherries, light oak, spices, light earth, herbs, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, licorice and a touch of vanilla.

Tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This young Bordeaux blend from Tuscany is already drinking nicely, even right out of the bottle. Spicy and rich.

Opulent with lots of fruits, but also some earth notes to compliment the fruits.

Tannins show up after 30 minutes of airtime. A great nose shows itself after 90 minutes in the decanter. Much better once it opens up, so be patient.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, or with food. Tangy, spicy and entertaining. I paired it with beef stew.

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. Aged in oak barrels for 14 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
