Chateau Timberlay Cuvée Prestige Rouge 2010, Bordeaux, France

TIMBERLAY PRESTIGE 2008 001

Grape Varietals: 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Vintage: 2010

Tasting Note– This clear, bright wine is ruby-red in colour, with a complex nose of soft fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry) and attractive woody and spicy overtones. Château Timberlay is soft and full-bodied, with good structure and acidity, as well as very elegant tannin. The finish is very long with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.

Pavillon Cardinal, Saint Emilion 2015, Bordeaux, France

Grape Varietals: 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2015

Tasting Note– An immensely appealing wine with an intense purple colour and violet highlights. The powerful bouquet is quite fruity (red fruit and candied fruit) with added hints of truffle and chocolate. Hearty and well-structured, Pavillon Cardinal is tannic, fruity and especially attractive due to the way its long, fruity aftertaste develops on the palate.

Santa Rita 120 Reserva Especial Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Central Valley, Chile

Santa Rita 120 Cab Sauv

Appellation: Central Valley

 

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Vintage: 2016

 

Tasting note: 120 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep and intense violet-red in color. Notes of red and black fruits predominate on the nose with the touch of spice that is typical in Cabernet, plus the aromas of vanilla, cloves, and tobacco that come from the oak. Sweet, elegant, and smooth tannins lend depth to the well-rounded palate and lead to a fresh, fruity, and juicy finish.
