Tasting Notes:

99 points Asian Palate, Jeannie Cho Lee

Tasted: October 2014, Hong Kong, China

Impressive wine with layers of delicate and refined flavors – dark berries mingle with savory herbs and spices with firm, ripe tannins. Finish is incredibly long and the structure is impressive – this wine will age for at least 20 years.

95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a dead-ringer for a first or second growth Pauillac. Aromas of spring flowers, creme de cassis, licorice, cedarwood and lead pencil shavings are followed by a wine with that wonderful sweet fruit that the French call sucrosite, which is an impression of sweetness even though the wine is totally dry. A superb texture, stunning purity and a full-bodied, blockbuster finish make for a wine that should be reasonably drinkable when released next year. It should age nicely for 20-25 years.
