We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The nose leads with the now-typical Tapteil
dusty fruit, oak spice and black cherry. These
echo on the palate, joined by cocoa powder
and plums. The tannins are fine and firm, and
definitely need a couple years to soften, peel away and reveal more of the intense fruit and savory notes hidden inside.
"Good bright deep red. Wild, soil-driven aromas of cinnamon spice, fresh herbs, red licorice, iodine and sage. Then quite backward and firm in the mouth owing to its strong acid/tannin spine. The 2007 Tapteil was sweeter and silkier at the same stage, but this wine's subtle intensity, complexity and claret-like structure suggest it will ultimately merit an even higher score. Today the finish is a bit less sweet and the tannins less refined than the 2007 Ciel du Cheval.Rating: 92(+?)"
International Wine Cellar
"The 2008 Taptiel is made up of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new French oak for 18 months. More reticent aromatically as well as more structured, it will require 4-6 years to fully blossom, so patience is required. The wine appears to be in balance and should evolve gracefully.
