Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (93)

Review date: January 1, 2017

Wine Review: This dark red colored "Old School" wine from Rothschild and Catena is very very good. It opens with a mild ripe black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty cedar infused black cherry with notes of plum, blackberry, mild minerality and a touch of olive. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins are rather sticky. This wine would pair well with a well-marbled steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby color. The nose recalls red and black fruit aromas, mingled with hints of mocha and spices. It evolves slowly, revealing layer after layer of elegant fragrances. In the mouth, the acidity is refreshing and persistent. Well-balanced tannins contribute to the harmony and smoothness of the palate. We recommend serving this wine at 16 C. If there is enough time, do not decant the wine in order to appreciate its slow evolution over the course of an evening. This vintage presents a good capacity to age and will open up more over time.

Organic status: not organic
