Clos des Fous Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013


An evocative wine with legs which, while drinking beautifully now, would benefit from some time and quiet.  Has a softness that is lighter and more ethereal than the Oz and California Cab Sauvs, some chocolate covered cherry on the palate, a talcum soft mouth, and finishes with vanilla alongside an astringent swab of alcohol.  Up and down and over and about without a clear trajectory.

 

Interesting, provocative, nuanced.

 

Price: $33 at Liberty. ($10 cheaper in Saskatchewan.  Which is, I might add, also in Canada.)

 

Market Liquidity: Sudoku in a bottle.

Spectacular with a homemade meat pie braised in Guinness
