    Château Cos d'Estournel

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    3 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos D'Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from the winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d'Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half a century. Drink 2022-2072."
    100 points - Robert Parker, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2012

     

    "Blended of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2009 Cos d'Estournel takes a little coaxing to encourage the full array of exotic spices and decadent black fruits to emerge here: crème de cassis, baked plums, blueberry compote and Black Forest cake intermingled with star anise, fenugreek, cumin seed and Sichuan pepper plus wafts of menthol, violets and smoked meats. Wow—the full-bodied palate bursts with powerful, hedonic black fruit preserves and spices, completely coating the mouth with decadent fruits that are perfectly framed by very firm yet very ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a veritable firework display of floral, spice and red fruit notes. Just stunning."
    100 points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Nov 2018

     

    "What a fabulous nose of currants, raspberries and Indian spices. Nutmeg and clover. Full-bodied, with an amazing precision and superb compacted fruit. Endless. Laser guided. Shows such intensity. Decadent and rich and changing all the time. Mystical wine. Dense, yet agile. More refined than when I tasted it in November in Hong Kong. Try in 2018."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    94 points - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

     

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

  3. Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 375 ml

    Chocolate cake, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    Cabernet has acclimatized extremely well to the Niagara Peninsula so it is a good candidate to make into Icewine. We tend these blocks of Cabernet like the others carefully managing the yields and of course keeping the bunches clean by removing any berries at the first signs of breakdown. Then we wait. And in late January, when the temperature dropped to -13ºC we hand-harvested the bunches by the light of the moon.

    Castell d'Encus

    Costers del Segre (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

    3 bottles x Quest 2011

     

    "The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

    95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate's Robert Parker, Feb 2014

     

    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    This is the best example of Bordeaux that we have experienced in the last 10 years. Aged 18 months in French oak, this wine shows tart dark fruit, cigar box and herbal aromas. The palate is full with bold tannins, dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Definitely a wine for aging, we are curious to see how it
    changes over the next 9 or 10 years.

    Terres de Vidalba

    Priorat (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml


    “The 2007 TOCS was sourced from a single vineyard named Barranc de la Bruixa located outside the town of Poboleda. The blend is 35% Garnacha, 30% Syrah, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 16 months in 20% new French oak. Aromas of wood smoke, mineral, herbs, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry inform the nose of this layered, opulent Priorat. With excellent volume and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years, this sweetly-fruited, lengthy offering will be at its best from 2013 to 2022.” - Wine Advocate, May 2011

    Redstone Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 750 ml

    Borscht Cabbage Soup, Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    A stunning red blend from the moderately warm summer of 2013. This Meritage is a "return to roots" style inspired by the 2010 vintage. A blend of 34% Redstone Vineyard Merlot, 33% Redstone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Redstone Vineyard Cabernet Franc. This estate wine is full bodied with supple tannins and structure that would benefit from decanting before serving, but is highly approachable in its relative youth. Aromas of cassis, plum, basket fruits and sweet wood are prevalent on the nose. The palate is alive with notes of black fruit, blueberries and tart raspberries and are soon followed by hints of savoriness.

    Stratus Vineyards

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 200 ml

    Foie gras, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    Very pretty, candied strawberry and raspberry, high-toned violets on the nose. This is an excellent example; one of the best red Icewines I've come across, without the concentrated bell pepper essence that often characterizes Icewines made as a last resort when fruit didn't ripen sufficiently to make table wine. Long finish. Well balanced. Superb. Harvested during the night at temperatures between -10° and -12°C. Juice from the frozen berries was slowly removed using a traditional wooden basket press to extract the most color possible, then settled in stainless steel tanks. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast to retain volatile aromatics. After a short aging period in stainless steel, the wine was settled, filtered, and bottled by gravity.

    Bello Family Vineyards

    California (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    This generous wine encompasses the true varietal character and power of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from prized vineyard sites throughout California. An aromatic lift of fresh cherry, dry thyme and toasted black peppercorn abound from the glass. On the palate, flavors of black cherry, racy black berry and plum compote frame the heart of this wine. Firm tannin's, balanced acidity and compelling layers of semi-sweet chocolate and dark roast espresso beans defines the long and layered finish of this wine. > Learn More

France is noted for the quality of its wines and part of the reason is the Cabernet Sauvignon. Hailing from the Bordeaux region, this black grape is the foundation for some of the most appealing red wines in the world. History indicates that the Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of a fortunate accident that led to breeding a combination of the red Cabernet Franc grape with the white Sauvignon Blanc grape. From the 17th century on, this new grape has gained in popularity and shows no signs of slowing down. The grape provides a healthy dose of tannins, a factor that allows the wine to age gracefully over the years. Part of this is due to aging the wine in oak as a way to help bring out the many layers of flavor. Experts tend to consider it to be the ideal wine to serve with everything from a formal dinner to an afternoon snack of bread and cheese.
