Winemaker's Notes

This medium to dark ruby-colored Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real was produced from 32-46 year old vines. It bursts from the glass with violets, lilies, blueberries, cherries, blackberries, and buttery oak. Its Margaux-like personality is medium to full-bodied, rich, and lush. A myriad of ripe dark fruits are interspersed with toasty oak in this intense, powerful wine. Its character brings to mind a hypothetical blend of Bordeaux and Napa Valley, with an elegantly structured, juicy core of fruit being married with a plush, muscular, opulent quality. This wine's impressively long finish exhibits loads of tannin, yet they are ripe and supple.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
