Bordeaux Blends - Continued - Southbrook Stuns Again

A second wine we found stunning from this weekend is the 2007 Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Cabernet Merlot.

First tasted in 2010, this wine had a long way to go. Now that it's hit its stride, it demands a lean cut of beef on the BBQ, nothing added except maybe a touch of beet juice reduction. The wine enters with plum, blackberry, juicy black cherry and warm spice aromas. These flow through the palate, with dried fig, smoldering tobacco, and linzer torte rounding out the wine. 92 Points.
