Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94(+?)

($165) Deep ruby. Vibrant, pure aromas of black raspberry and violet. Sweet, primary and sophisticated, with a lovely lightness of touch for a 2004. Very fresh cabernet with a building finish featuring suave, rich tannins and outstanding length. From fruit picked under more moderate conditions than the merlot, which came in during the heat spike at the beginning of September.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Estate reveals notes of cocoa, coffee, chocolate and creme de cassis. It cuts a bigger swath across the palate than the Merlot, but with no hard edges. Deeply textured and multidimensional with loads of fruit as well as a flawless integration of acidity, alcohol, tannin and wood, this medium to full-bodied, classic Blankiet should continue to drink well for another 15-20 years.

Tight, with spicy currant, herb, cedar, mineral and herbal leather notes. Complex but restrained, this is balanced, yet leaves you hoping for more richness and depth. Needs air.

Decanted this one and tasted at pop, an hour in and then three hours in. Wasn't all that tasty until three hours- seemed tight and rather dull fruit. After three hours, it really opened. Perfumed nose with floral notes as well as port and cedar. This wine was a good solid cab, but not exceptional like other Blankiet bottles have been. This is drinking fine now and is unlikely to improve but it will last for another 8+.

Big, dense, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark purple color on rim continues with hues of violets and blues throughout the wine bowl. Huge volumes of aromas rise from the glass: blackberry, espresso, graphite, dark chocolate, toffee and cassis. The entry explodes with flavor and then wine opens in the center with weighty richness and finishes with focus. Long finish of black truffle and blackberries.

Tanic and young. Needs time.

About This Producer


Located in the western hills of Yountville, in the foothills of the Mayacamas range, Blankiet shares a founding date with Arietta. In 1996, the husband and wife team of Claude and Katherine Blankiet, with the aid of viticulturist David Abreu, and winemaker Helen Turley, created a stable of wines that validate the extraordinary terroir of their 16 acres of vineyards. The first eight vintages were made by Turley, but now the winemaking team consists of consulting oenologist Michel Rolland and winemaker Martha McClellan-Levy.
