2014 Cap St. George, St.-Georges-St.-Emilion

SKU #1344024 91 points James Suckling

 Very pretty aromas of chocolate, forest floor and berries follow through to a full body, tangy acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Tangy. Better in 2019 but excellent now.  (2/2017)


 The 2014 Cap St. Georges is a soft, supple wine to drink now and over the next few years. Succulent dark cherry, spice, leather and tobacco add to the wine's considerable near- and medium-term appeal. Drink 2017-2024. (AG)  (2/2017)

A modern and lush wine held crisply together due to the fresh acidity of the vintage. There is great weight and texture to the smooth dark fruit and a nice lift on the finish. A delicious and approachable success.

While still a tad young, Cap St. George definitely has the substance to age into something special. It has bright flavors of red currants and cranberries with a little earth and toast underscoring the bright fruit. The acidity and tannins will keep this aging well for at least a decade, making it a great Merlot-blend to keep in the cellar.

Additional Information:


Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
