Our Bordeaux Cab Sauv leaps from the glass with dark berry, currant and smoke aromas. These aromas are echoed on the palate, where blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors are framed by ripe, supple tannins. A dense, attention-grabbing, full-flavored and robust example of what Bordeaux does best.
While yesterday’s Bordeaux reds were rough, rugged wines with angular tannins and a green streak on the palate, today’s talented Bordeaux winemakers have learned a thing or two about working with this exigent variety – allowing the grapes to ripen properly on the vine, controling for oxidation in the cellar and gently extracting Cab Sauv’s grippy tannins. Origine de Lynch Bordeaux Cab was carefully made in this tradition, and the result is a fruity wine, with supple tannins and a long, finish that echoes Bordeaux’s mineral-rich soils.
