Domaines Barons de Rothschild Cabernet Sauvignon Los Vascos 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A rainy spring permitted considerable reduction in summer irrigation. It looked like this vintage would have been marred by excessive summer heat, thereby impairing temporarily grape development and producing focused dehydration in some bunches. Happily, mostly fresh and cloudy weather predominated during the harvest. A beautiful ruby colour of average intensity. Its nose exudes ripe aromas of strawberry and black cherry accompanied by a pleasant touch of jam and chocolate. In the mouth, it is fresh, gentle, consistent and very fruity with a slightly spicy finish. It is a wine of medium structure, well balanced and with ripe discreet tannins which make it easily accessible. Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic production of Los Vascos, and is the grape that made the estate famous. The vintages all share a mature and fruity quality, fresh aromas, and a supple and fleshy structure.

After 30 mins: still slight hot in the nose, but lots of cherries, earth and power there too. In the mouth, a nice fruity wine - decent backbone and structure. Nice acidity and strong tannins. A very fruity wine, with a decent finish for the price. Powerful finish of chocolate and licorice. I'm a big fan.

Reddish-black, with dull ruby edges. Sage, marjoram, and rancid butter nose. Stems, nettles, earth and tar, a bit of mint, but no identifiable fruit. Bitter and sour, leaving more of an aftertaste than a finish. A real disappointment, as some reviews identified it as a great wine for the dollars.

Super restrained and closed nose - dead, with only a hint of medicinal plum. More going on with the taste - integrated light pencil lead, still fruit. Smooth, medium fine-textured tannins. Balanced acidity. Blueberry and black cherries. Still life left in this?

Boring $10 California-style cabernet that happens to be from Chile. Waste of international shipping if you ask me. Dull, boring, uninteresting oaky heatbomb.

An elegant and full-bodied Cabernet. This wine features classic Cabernet Sauvignon flavors including a touch of eucalyptus on the finish.
