Lot #597. Alejandro Bulgheroni Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beauty. Largely Cabernet Sauvignon with tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and hailing from four sectors of Napa Valley (Pritchard Hill, St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville), the wine offers a Pauillac-like note of unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with crème de cassis, Christmas fruitcake, tobacco leaf, licorice, and red and blackcurrants galore. The great fruit on the attack follows through to the mid-palate, which is opulent and full-bodied with sweet, luscious tannins. The wine was aged 22 months in 70% new French oak. This is a hedonistic but complex beauty . . . . This is the first time I have seen these wines from Alejandro Bulgheroni, a globe-trotting Argentinian/Italian entrepreneur who owns what is an impressive lineup of vineyards from Barossa Valley in Australia to Brunello di Montalcino in Italy, Bordeaux in France, Patagonia in Argentina, and now his own property in St. Helena in Napa Valley. Philippe Melka and Michel Rolland, two French kingpins of oenology, are consultants for his Cabernet Sauvignons." Wine Advocate #227, Oct 2016
Provenance: The Apennine Cellar
