  1. Arbalest, Bordeaux 2015

    Arbalest, Bordeaux 2015

    BEFORE you check your eyes, round file this email, or think that someone is playing a hoax on you; YES this is a BORDEAUX email from Jeff W., your CAB MAN. I think that in this case I've got a few legs to stand on. This wine is the perfect California/Bordeaux tie in. There isn't a better $20 Bordeaux that drinks like $40 on the market.

    First, the winemaker is Benoit Touquette (the winemaker at Hartwell, Realm, Kata, and his own label, which you may be familiar with, Fait Main (Teeter Totter)). Benoit who was born in Bordeaux, and moved to Napa Valley to work with some of the best grapes in the world, has been mentored by Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson (Dalla Valle, Spottswoode, and Screaming Eagle).

    Second, Arbalest is a collaborative effort between Benoit and importer/distributor Kimberly Jones. Let's just say that Kimberly has a knack for finding and distributing the BEST Cabernet Sauvignon lineup in the state. If great Cabernet were a needle in a haystack she'd find it. The Arbalest came into being while Kimberly and Benoit travelled together in France and believed that they could make a better more reasonably priced Bordeaux.

    This is Bordeaux made in the "California Style". The aromas and flavors are dripping with lush juicy full bodied fruit, boasting and abundance of dark fruit flavors and possessing an incredibly rich texture and silky smooth tannins.

    The Arbalest displays unctuous aromas of deep dark blue florals, blackberry, boysenberry pomegranate and plum along with hints of graphite, crushed granite, wisps of truffle and forest floor; the aromatic palette is big, prominent and beautiful.

    The flavors are full bodied and well integrated showing rich ripe layers of blueberry, crème de cassis, black cherry compote, kirsch, wisps of smoke, fresh turned soil, truffle, cola and boysenberry. The texture, depth and concentration are where the "California" shines through. Deep, luscious, concentrated and palate coating the Arbalest is a winner through and through.

    Benoit and Kimberly have combined the best of both worlds and done so for a price that you won't believe. If it's good enough to win over your Cab Man; it's GOTTA be GOOD!! Get a case while I've got it! You won't regret it. Learn More

  4. Borie-Manoux Beau Rivage, Bordeaux 2011

    Borie-Manoux Beau Rivage, Bordeaux 2011

    The Beau-Rivage wine is one of Bordeaux's oldest brands and has been Borie-Manoux's business card for more than 60 years. It is a combination of wines produced on several of the company's properties. Beau-Rivage Premium was launched with the vintage of 2008 as a wine in Bordeaux Supérieur quality. It is usually composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fermentation takes place for 2-3 weeks on temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine matures on new classic Bordeaux barriques for six months.

    The main emphasis is on Merlot and the wine has a delicious and fairly immediate fruit flavor, as well as a good velor and finesse in taste. Cabernet Sauvignon also gives it a good structure and depth, with it is clearly the finesse and elegance that wins in this very harmonious wine. The stay on wood has added the character of vanilla and wood to the aftertaste, without it being overtaken. Learn More
  5. Chateau Berliquet, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru  2015

    Chateau Berliquet, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015

    96-97 James Suckling - Here is a wine with great pedigree near Ausone. Full body, yet fast and agile. The finish lasts for minutes. You see the chalky soil in the wine. Learn More
  6. Chateau Branon, Pessac-Leognan 2008

    Chateau Branon, Pessac-Leognan 2008

    92 points Wine Advocate - A sleeper of the vintage, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Branon displays chocolatey, earthy undertones intermixed with black currants and Asian plum sauce. Medium to full-bodied, rich, impressively endowed, supple and evolved, it can be drunk over the next 10-12 years. Learn More
  7. Chateau Canon la Gaffeliere, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014
  8. Chateau Carbonnieux Rouge, Pessac-Leognan 2014

    Chateau Carbonnieux Rouge, Pessac-Leognan 2014

    92 points Wine Advocate - The 2014 Carbonnieux Rouge has a delightful, clean and pure bouquet with gravel and sous-bois scents neatly interwoven into the blackberry fruit. It feels quite understated, but it gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity that lends this impressive tension and vibrancy. There is not enormous length here, but the sorbet-like freshness wins you over. Keep in the cellar for 2-3 more years and then enjoy over the next 15-18 years. Learn More
  9. Chateau Chantelune, Margaux 2012

    Chateau Chantelune, Margaux 2012

    90 points Wine Spectator - "Lovely plush plum and blackberry fruit is carried by a well-integrated cocoa note before giving way to ganache and black tea accents on the velvety finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2020. 816 cases made." Learn More
