Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon Valle del Maule 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a classic winemaking style, respecting the characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. The wine is fruit forward, elegant, and exhibits soft tannins, making it pleasant to drink in its youth. Oak is used sparingly to keep Carpe Diem fresh and vibrant. Grapes for the Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon have been selected exclusively from the best vineyards in world renowned Napa Valley. Vinified under the strict supervision of Christian Moueixs (Chateau Petrus, Dominus) winemaking team in Yountville, California, Carpe Diem embodies the essence of Napa Valley classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a refreshing and straightforward wine expressing its bountiful fruit with bright aromas of wild strawberries and soft tannins.

Disappointing. Past its prime, poor color, flat soapy taste.

Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Diemersfontein: Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Rotwein von DiemersfonteinDas Weingut Diemersfontein ist bekannt für ihr Extra an Eleganz und Fruchtfülle. Dafür wurden sie weltweit ausgezeichnet und auch dieser Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 wurde hochdotiert. Die Winzer haben also den Tag genutzt und auch Sie sollten nach einem gelungen Tag diesen feinen Wein genießen. Seine Duft- und Geschmacksnuancen sind merkbar von Brombeeren geprägt, gefolgt von Spuren von süßem Gewürz, von Bleistiftschnitz, Nelken, grünem Pfeffer und Nuancen von Pfefferminzschokolade. Den Gaumen umschmeicheln weiche, reife, subtile und gut eingebundene Gerbsäuren. Wenn Sie diesem Wein Zeit geben, wird er und auch Sie davon profitieren, dennoch ist er auch sofort trinkbar. Wenn Sie diesen Wein zu Gerichten wie Perlhuhn, Huhn, herzhaften Kasserollen oder gegrilltem Lamm mit Rosmarin genießen, haben Sie ihren Tag schon wunderbar genutzt.Weingut: DiemersfonteinLand: SüdafrikaRegion: PaarlRebsorten: 100% Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6 g/lRestsüße: 2,75 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (15 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 10 - 15 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen des Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon 2008:4 Platter StarsMichelangelo GoldVeritas Silber Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek

Carpe Diem means "Seize the Day" in Latin and it seems like that's exactly what the makers of this wine are constantly doing. Christian Mouiex and his Dominus winemaking team in Yountville had yet another wine to produce after they were done with Dominus and Napanook Cabernet, and this is it. Sourced from Napa Valley vineyards near the winery this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak barrels. The comparison to Bordeuax is quite striking but not very surprising since Mouiex is also the owner of Chateau Petrus in Pomerol. And the price is a steal compared their other lofty wares so our advice to you is Carpe Vinum, Seize the Wine! And don't wait! It's Limited.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90An impressive Cabernet, the winery's best effort in years. Dry and firm in tannins, it shows a Bordeauxesque elegance and balance, with sage and cedar notes framing underlying red currant fruit. Now through 2012.Wine Tasting NotesCarpe Diem Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a classic winemaking style, respecting the characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. The wine is fruity, elegant, and exhibits soft tannins. This is a very pleasant wine to drink in its youth. Oak is used sparingly to keep Carpe Diem fresh with vibrant fruit.
