Introduction

Blends of Cabernet and Merlot

Flight 1 (5 notes)

Red
2014 Château La Fleur de Gay France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Pomerol
91 points
Deep ruby, with some fading on edges. A pepper spiced nose, with blackberry, lavender, and a certain reddish earthiness. A good hit of tannins and power, with blackberry and raspberry flavours, and grass, roses, and tar. Quite a long floral finish
Red
2005 Cullen Wines Diana Madeline Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River
92 points
Deep ruby, with browning and fading on edges. Pronounced nose, with ripe cassis and cranberry, purple florals, cinnamon, liquorice, basil, and eucalyptus. Tannins still strong, but intense ripe plum and cranberry flavours, with cloves and cinnamon. A fair length of cranberry and florals
Red
2012 Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon Max Reserva Chile, Aconcagua Valley
91 points
Deep ruby, with some edge fading. Powerful and complex nose, with ripe strawberry and cassis aromas, as well as cinnamon spices, olives, and cigar smoke. Still a lot of tannins, but balanced with a lot of ripe cassis and strawberry flavours, and clove spices. Upfront, and a nice balance
Red
1998 Château La Garde France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan
92 points
Deep garnet, with significantly fading edges. Aromas of moss, earth, twigs, and some rather underripe red cherry. Still lots of tannins and heat, with red cherry, fern, cloves, twigs, moss, and graphite. Nice!
Red
2010 Réserve de la Comtesse France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac
90 points
Deep ruby, with slight edge fading. Grassy and red floral aromas, as well as raspberry and cranberry, as well as clove spices. High tannins, and a red cherry and raspberry flavour of medium ripeness as well as grass, fern and cloves. Medium finish
