2013 Sauska Cuvee 5
Sourced from premium estate parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, then aged for 16 months in new and used French Oak Barrels. If you close your eyes, you might fantasize that you were savoring a fine vintage Pomerol from Bordeaux’s Right Bank.
The highly perfumed bouquet is classic French with earth, mushrooms and truffles. Unctuous ripe, black fruits of mulberry and blackberry compote are mixed with savory Asian spices and graphite. This seductive wine is powerful yet silky and elegant through the finish. It is a thought-provoking and memorable effort that you might rank among your top ten of all time.
