Chateau Potelle

VGS Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

We’re snowed ❄️ in on a Friday night and decided to imbibe this generously gifted Chateau Potelle, VGS Vintage 2010, ABV 14.5%. It’s predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside Merlot, from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley, California. 🍷 🇺🇸

Wow, aromas and flavors are exuberant, concentrated, rich, and span a spectrum of characteristics from candied plum, ripe black cherry, and crème de cassis to black olive and crushed violet, to nutmeg, cardamom, and clove, to leather, tobacco, smoke, meat, and earth.

Tannins and mouthfeel are supple and smooth. Acidity is present, lending balance.

This wine is bold and is drinking beautifully now, though it has potential for further aging.

Cheers!

Imanol Garay

Abiatu Tannat Cabernet Franc

Abiatu 2017 de Imanol Garay @imanolgaray. 95% #tannat y 5% #cabernetfranc. 18 meses de crianza en barricas de 228 l y ánforas de arenisca. Madiran. Francia. 14% vol.
Impresionante vista picota de capa media-alta con ribete carmesí. Lágrima fina y densa que tinta la copa.
Aromas que necesitan de aireación para desplegar un abanico cuyo protagonista es el aporte mineral de pedernal que se ve acompañado por sensaciones de fruta roja y negra (arándanos), recuerdos de hoja de tabaco y toques balsámicos.
Ataque inicial picante con un carbónico sutil. Muy buena acidez. Tanino rugoso y sensaciones sedosas. Fresco, complejo y de buen recorrido. Adictivo.
Vino personal de Imanol Garay al que hay que acercarse con la mente abierta y huyendo de estereotipos.
A mi, personalmente, me ha encantado, aunque le queda recorrido y, quizás, dar aún lo mejor de sí con más tiempo.

Teeter-Totter

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Purple hue with ruby rim variation. Noticeable extraction and moderate tearing. Candied black and red fruit on the nose; blackberry, raspberry, cassis; dried roses; potpourri; potting soil, molasses, and anise notes; cedar box and vanilla. Smooth, soft tannins on the palate. Dry. Palate is largely consistent with the nose, but definitely fruit-forward and noticeable new oak. Medium acidity with a slight spiciness. #teetertotter #napavalley #napavalleycab #cabernetsauvignon #faitmainwines #winelover #newworldwines #californiagirl #wineandfood

Lagarde

Altas Cumbres Mendoza Malbec 2018



No puedo evitar regresar a los tintos, no dudo que en verano me gustan mas los vinos rosados que los blancos, pero los tintos son mi perdición, les bajo la temperatura entre 16° y 18°C los disfruto mucho, una noche fresca, un buen trozo jugoso de carne, ensalada de tomate, lechuga, palta, un buen aliño con finas hierbas, ¡listo! En vista: color rojo, violáceo, nariz: frutos del bosque, negros y rojos, boca: equilibrado, complejo, persistencia media larga, se deja tomar, calidad precio buena, Saludos

Moss Wood

Wilyabrup Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Moss Wood is a name synonymous with top quality wines and it’s their Cab Sauvs which have a cult like following. And I can see why after trying this sample bottle I was kindly sent from the Moss Wood team. Thank you!

This 2015 was released on the 1st of May 2018. The 2015 vintage was a rather uncanny vintage for Moss Wood as it was so alike to the 2014 vintage by way of similar temperature, rainfall, season length and ripeness.

The majority of the wine is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon however there’s a small hint of Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%) in the blend.

So what’s it like? It’s ageing beautifully and I have no doubt it’ll be enjoyed for years to come.

It’s an intoxicating deep purple-red colour in the glass. Dark black and blue berries, cedar wood, vanilla and all spice come through on the nose for me. In the mouth it’s extremely well balanced. It’s both bold and elegant at the same time with a nice loooong finish. Simply beautiful to drink 😍

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
