Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)?

(a Bordeaux blend based on 81% cabernet sauvignon): Deep ruby-red. Black cherry and licorice on the discreet, pure nose. Densely packed , spicy and rich; not especially broad on the palate but boasts superb concentration for the vintage and a sappy impression of dry extract. The black cherry and dark berry flavors are lifted by a floral element. Serious, youthfully tough tannins will require at least five years of cellaring.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
