International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 168

(14.6% alcohol; 76% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 4% cabernet franc; I tasted a blend that winemaker Gislason described as "75% done"): Bright medium ruby, a bit less saturated than the 2010. Precise, cool aromas of blackberry, violet, minerals and spearmint. Not quite the depth of the 2010 but offers superb intensity and cut to its very primary, fine-grained dark berry, floral and mint flavors. Still quite youthfully taut and firmly tannic on the aftertaste, in need of further elevage to flesh out. This was racked following the malolactic fermentation but not since then, with the result that it's very imploded today. But wonderfully elegant and intense, and a big success for the vintage. Winemaker Gislason noted that the merlot was in by September 27, well before the rainy spells of October.
