Domaine du Castel Grand Vin ’16

74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 15% Petit Verdot

2019 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100: #100

“Ripe currant, blackberry and plum flavors are nicely displayed with mocha, baking spice and cedar details in this sinewy, focused red. Hints of olive and graphite mark the tannic finish. Drink now through 2025. 3,900 cases made, 1,280 cases imported. -GS” (WS)

“The 2016 Grand Vin is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and 11% Merlot aged for 18 months in two-thirds new French oak. It comes in at 15% alcohol. This, said owner Eli-Gilbert Ben-Zaken, was from a year “where everything came nicely together… weather, phenolic maturation and bud size.” (WA)

Winery Notes:
Castel Gran Vin is a classic, elegant wine, bearing deep coloring and a concentrated and complex bouquet of blackberries, spices and fine (yet tangible) tannin. This is a balanced wine, with a velvety smoothness and a long clean finish. It is recommended to decant the wine before serving.
