LibDib’s 90+ Point Red Wine Offerings - November 2019
Description: This wine is produced in Cérons; one of the smallest and oldest appellations in Bordeaux. The estate is made up of 26 hectares of vines planted on a gravel plateau with limestone subsoil. Tastings.com says, “Dusty garnet color. Fruity aromas of cranberry orange scone, candied strawberries, leather, and red cassis with a round, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, nuanced, long chocolate licorice, espresso, sarsaparilla, ripe cherries, cured pork, and cinnamon finish with earthy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A ready-to-drink Graves that will be even more delightful after cellaring.”
Description: James Suckling has this to say about this fabulous wine: “A juicy and fruity red with dried-plum and strawberry character, as well as cream. Medium to full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Drink now. Screw cap." Ruby garnet in colour. On the nose, the wine is all about fresh strawberry, cherry and raspberry with a hint of toast and clove spice from the oak. The palate is well balanced, showing bright red fruits with creamy oak notes subtly sitting around the wine and seamlessly integrating with the fruit. Tannins are silky smooth and weave the palate together producing a wine that is fruit forward, complex and long.
Description: Hertelendy’s Signature Napa Valley Red Blend has a limited-production of 388 cases. This wine represents the essence of Hertelendy winemaking with great purity, balance and finesse. The foundation of Hertelendy’s Signature Napa Valley Red Blend is sourced from their Rockwell Ridge Estate Vineyard on Howell Mountain (23 year old vines at 1365 feet elevation). On this steep rugged terrain overlooking the Napa Valley, these mature vines grow in thin tuffaceous volcanic soil, expressing the richness, complexity, and character from this unique terroir. Aged for 23 months in 90% new French oak. They take a Right Bank Bordeaux stylistic approach with their wines that creates a concentrated and elegant blend that satisfies the senses with its poise, divinity and depth. 82% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot.
Rating: 94 Wine Enthusiast
Description: As Virgine Boone of Wine Enthusiast says, “This is a reserve wine worthy of its designation, blended with small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Soft layers of red currant and cassis highlight a full-bodied palate of integrated tannin and oak, offering plenty of length and expanse as dots of clove and cedar form.” Aged for 28 months in new French oak barrels, this wine consists of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec & 2% Petit Verdot.
Description: This expressive red delivers black cherry, cola, mineral and espresso flavors in a round, plush texture, supported by polished tannins that add just a delightful floral and exotically spiced edge, and touch of creaminess. In the mouth it has dramatic dark plum, damson and blueberry intensity, all smoothed by the coffeeish background of oak and wonderfully supple and creamy tannins. Briary, cherryish acidity completes a totally convincing picture of a terrific wine, and hugely impressive contemporary take on Rioja.
Description: Only 99 cases are produced of this small production wine. Paul Gregutt of Wine Enthusiast has this to say, “This vineyard, often featured in the Sineann lineup, moves over to WildAire for this sensational debut. The blend is a two-clone mix of 777 and Pommard, and it captures a range of delicate, well-defined flavors. Raspberry, cherry, light char, smoke, pepper, bitter herb, vanilla and chamomile tea come rolling through. The prime location, which borders on Jadot's Résonance vineyard, contributes a great deal, but the winemaking brings it on home.”
