I don’t often say this, but here another Cabernet that drinks like it’s $200, but only cost $55! Beautiful wine!

 

 

今天要講一個很酷的故事,女主角是Anna。她在著名的波爾多區酒莊實習,而且還是有名的酒莊:Haut Brion和Cheval Blanc~結束法國的學業後,Anna回到了美國,並且進入了Byrant家族酒莊(又是另一間加州膜拜酒莊)工作。累積了五年的經驗後,她終於創立了這個酒標!酒名中的Ilaria取自Anna女兒的名字,這樣大家能感受到她對酒付出的用心就像是對女兒的呵護了吧~而且,最重要的是,這款酒數量超少!! 只有300箱啊~~

 

2015年的混釀由82%的卡本內蘇維濃、12%卡本內弗朗,以及6%的梅洛組合而成。葡萄收購自阿特拉斯峰(Atlas Peak)、豪威爾山(Howell Mountain)以及聖赫勒拿(St. Helena)。酒體厚重而層次豐富,並且顯現出性感、成熟、甜美的好酒特質。

 

這款酒是納帕谷受歡迎程度中上的美酒,而且這幾年的評價相當好。整體而言,它是納帕谷CP質相當高的酒。酒款價格在去年維持穩定,但預計會愈來愈高,因為就像剛剛說的,評價可是愈來愈好喔!! 因此,要收藏就趁現在囉~~

 

最後,來說說Angie對這支混釀的印象吧~這款酒相當的平衡,平衡的點在於我們通常認為「新世界」和「舊世界」卡本內蘇維濃的特色。黑色與紅色水果味非常明顯,一開始就能品嚐到。第二香氣有著花崗岩、煙燻以及泥土味,讓酒體呈現複雜豐富、風味宜人的感受。簡單來說,Angie覺得它喝起來有$200元的價值。這麼說,大家就知道這支酒是多麼難得的了吧~可以說是買到就是賺到啊!!

 

----------English----------

 

The story of this wine starts with the winemaker Anna, who studied at the famous Bordeaux wineries such as Haut Brion and Cheval Blanc. After her stay in France, she returned to the US and worked for Byrant Family (another famous California Cult Winery) for another 5 years before starting this label on her own. Ilaria is the name of her daughter. It’s an expression of what she loves most, and the production is super limited, only 300 cases produced annually.

 

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot, from a mix of Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain and St. Helena. It is a rich, full-bodied, opulent 2015 that shows the sexy, ripe, sweet character of the vintage beautifully.

 

This is well above the average quality for wines from Napa Valley. Furthermore, this wine has been getting more notice and becoming more popular over the past couple years. Compared to many high-priced Cabernet from Napa Valley, Ilaria presents incredible value for wine lovers for what they deliver.

 

Angie’s Tasting note – It’s a great balance of flavors between what we usually consider as a “New World” vs “Old World” Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautiful bright black and red fruit immediately jump out of the glass, dancing in the palate. Then it’s got good granite, smoky and earthy secondary aromas and makes the wine very complex and enjoyable to drink and savor. It drinks like a $200+ Cabernet, for that, so for $54.99 this wine is a steal!
