Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This wine has a lively ruby red color. The nose presents fresh red fruit reminiscent of plums, strawberries, and cherries complemented by subtle herb notes that reflect the character of the cabernet sauvignon grapes, the diversity of the terroir, and give this 2013 vintage a special appeal. In the mouth it has volume and shows plenty of character with young, tasty, ripe tannins, which offer a naturally balanced acidity promising a good evolution. This is a wine ready to drink now or will be equally delightful if kept for a few years.
