C. C. Jentsch Small Lots Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

For colour, this wine joins the stable of any Bordeaux of Cru lineage. As for scent or bouquet, well, there is the blackberry, cassis, cured tobacco, and cedar we have come to love in this rightly revered grape. Jentsch has produced a wine of unbelievable purity - possibly stumping the critics in Ontario such as Crosariol into a simple 90 point assessment. But entry is sweet blackberry with a hint of tannic vanilla; here we get a snapshot of what Bordeaux was probably like before the end of the "little ice age" of 1500-1850. Finish is clean and world class. bravo, Chris! 91.
