Elyse Cabernet Sauvignon Tietjen 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose but with incipient currant fruit embedded in aromas of toasty cedary oak and framed with tarragon and fennel accents. Opening tight and focused, this shows of tightly wrapped dried berry fruits with a tobacco edge to them. A touch soft on acids but with enough to keep the black fruit flavors lively enough. On the midplate a licorice appears and wood tannins and toast drives right through the finish right now, This does offer some nicely presented fruit, with good clarity and a faceted feel, but it’s tight and a little chewy with tannins that clamp down hard on the finish. This needs 3 to 7 years to show it’s best but has everything in balance. 92pts
