Tasted ‘15 again, just a wonderful wine! In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Deep Ruby. Aromas and flavors of black cherry and blueberry with cacao, round oak and herb character. Firm tannins, long finish on this big wine with an earthy ending. Nice, but recommend decanting!

Tasted ‘15 & ‘16 together. In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Aromas and flavors of black cherry and blueberry with cacao, gentle oak and herb character. Firm grip on tannins, long finish on this big wine with an earthy ending. Approachable but decanting helps for now!

In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired le Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Aromas and flavors of black cherry and blueberry with cacao, gentle oak and herb character. Firm grip on tannins, lingering this big wine to an earthy ending. Tight now give it some time, decanting helps if you must now!

Little spice and hints of wood. Nice and fruity and very smooth.
