姊今天介紹的不是酒,而是態度!讓我慢慢道來~

這款酒在Wine Advocate雜誌的Robert Parker Jr.手中拿到了93分的高分,是非常值得入手的一款酒!而它的特別在於 — 它有一個雙胞胎姊妹~~ 這個淵源就要從釀酒師Laura Díaz Muñoz說起了。Laura對於加州產紅酒的相當有貢獻,而她的代表作就是今天的主角:畫廊(Galerie)系列酒款。這一系列的酒總共有兩支,分別來自加州兩大著名產區 — 納帕山谷和騎士谷;兩個產區各有特色,而畫廊系列無疑將他們的獨特魅力展現得淋漓盡致!

這兩支酒除了葡萄產區不同之外,其餘的釀製過程完全一樣,都經過了23天的浸皮過程,全程100%筐式壓榨,放置於木桶裡並用蘋果乳酸和當地酵母發酵,完成後再以60%新法國橡木桶熟成,最後未過濾裝瓶。這樣不難了解為什麼Angie說他們是雙胞胎了吧!! 也因為製程相同,喝到的不同風味就是真真正正兩個產區的本色了~~

轉回正題,今天Angie要說的是來自納帕區的姊妹花!! 2014年產的Galerie Napa Valley Pleinair酒精濃度有14.5%,並帶著優雅氣息。為了呈現漂亮的深紫色,酒款冷浸了三天,讓酒色、風味和單寧都有所提升。聞起來帶著黑醋栗、黑加侖、野莓的香味,還跟隨著菸草、石墨、月桂葉和甘草的味道。整體口感層次豐富,喉韻深長,且單寧、酸度都非常平衡。不知道是不是真的是所謂的 “female touch” 但是她做出來的酒總是有莫名的柔順口感~ 超讚啦!

說到這裡,大家發現了姊要介紹的「態度」了嗎?釀酒師Laura嚴格控管著釀製過程,就是為了讓大家能品味到不同產區的風味,更貼近不同地區的自然特色。這樣用心良苦的酒款,怎能叫人不心動啊~~~ 像之前一樣,這款酒的數量也是有限der,想品嚐的人動作要快囉!!!

A terrific value in Napa Cabernet, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pleinair (91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot) sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific notes of crème de cassis, spicy oak, white chocolate and flowers. It offers loads of fruit, a full-bodied, pure, elegant texture, sweet tannin and just a charming, balanced, classic style that begs to be drunk.  (12/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon called Pleinair is a blend of 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It is aged 20 months in 58% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine has a similarity to a top-flight St.-Julien from Bordeaux. Loads of Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, tobacco leaf, black currants and spice box all jump from the glass and from the flavors of this round, juicy, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. (RP)
