Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89(+?)

Moderately saturated red. Sauvage aromas of red fruits, smoke, coffee, game and lead pencil; reminded me more of Burgundy than Bordeaux. Mineral, lead pencil and tobacco flavors nicely framed by edgy acids. Seems less dense than the '97, but may simply be closed in on itself today. Will rely more on its acids than its tannins for longevity. (Old Bridge Cellars, Napa, CA)

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
