Community Tasting Note

  • La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 93 points

    January 26, 2019 - Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2016 Vintage Tasting (Las Vegas, NV): Although this deep ruby wine (a blend of 87% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) is a structured Bordeaux, there is a degree of elegance to it that many would refer to as "feminine." Up-front floral notes are buttressed with dried cranberries, coriander, black tea and pipe tobacco. Medium-bodied and fresh, this shows beautiful integration of the alcohol, oak and tannin components, making it a joy to drink. The middle palate is nicely dense, leading to a smooth, lengthy finish. This is a superb wine that could easily merit a higher score in the future. Drink 2024-2041.
