Bordeaux

16887 visitors
Red Bordeaux, which is traditionally known as claret in the United Kingdom, is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carmenere. Today Malbec is very seldom used, and Carmenere is used in tiny quantities. An example of a famous château that uses Carmenere is Château Clerc Milon, a fifth growth Bordeaux.

White Bordeaux, including the sweet Sauternes, is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.

2005 Sorridente
St. Helena

Sorridente means smile in Italian, and it is our hope that this delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Aglianico will make your day a little brighter and cause you to sm ...moreile. The 2005 Sorridente is a big wine that has great aging potential. The deep purple hue is consistent with the blackberry, plum nose. There are notes of cocoa powder and rose petal and a definitive "Italianesque" bouquet that makes itself more apparent after the wine opens in the glass. It is an excellent pair with substantial dishes such as rack of lamb, veal shank and aged, hard cheeses. Enjoy at joyous occasions both grand and humble.

This blend is elaborately crafted, offering full-bodied elegance and opening up beautifully on the palate.

Tastes of plum, chocolate, and oak are evident throughout. The wonderful flavor possesses a veneer of youthful tannins presenting a long finish.

2003 Furth
Sonoma County

Bold and rare - describes the wine and the man. Furth, the wine, is the pinnacle red wine from the Chalk Hill Estate; a wine that speaks in a booming voice of its terroir. Its big ...moreflavors are assembled from old-vine blocks of Bordeaux varietals that have the personality and panache to personify Fred Furth's vision of "the best that my home estate can produce."



Produced only in exceptional years, and in minute quantities, no expense is spared in its creation. Starting with intensive care in the vineyards- handcrafting in the winery, special cooperage, extended barrel age, even its sturdy, eponymous bottle- all are steps in the creative process designed to focus the fruit into a broad, expansive, weighty wine worthy of the name.

2006 Sonoma Valley Red Wine "les Vestiges"
Sonoma Valley

A Right Bank Bordeaux blend of 50% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 13% Petit Verdot from a vineyard we designed, planted, established, and farmed over sever ...moreal years at the northern tip of the Sonoma Valley. The young vineyard has given a wine with a relatively robust 14% alcohol, while the pH (3.79) and acidity (.60 g/100mL) provide a crisp counterbalance and, together with the powder-fine tannins, contribute to the seamless and sophisticated mouthfeel. Clean, pure, and serious, the wine is rounded out by 50% tight-grain new French Oak from a selection of coopers and barrel aged for 17 months. Aromatically, black tea, sage, citrus blossom, confiture cerises, brioche, honeysuckle, and allspice are evident. On the palate, an expansive entry evolves to a round and balanced texture with flavors on the border between the red and black fruit spectrums exhibiting black cherry, red currants, and plum notes. The finish is creamy and clean at the same time, with the mid palate flavors persisting and becoming more intertwined with the light vanilla and pain grillé notes, all lingering for a long, fine, finish.
